Davies requires surgery on his foot after suffering a serious injury in the finale of last Saturday’s 29-21 defeat to Australia at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

The 29-year-old was treated at the time and it has now been confirmed that he is facing a six month spell on the sidelines after going under the knife to correct the problem.

That means Wales will have to plan without him for their upcoming clashes with Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa, along with next spring’s Six Nations campaign.

Davies, who has won 65 caps for Wales, has previously been sidelined for extended spells with injuries, most notably when he missed the 2015 World Cup after tearing his cruciate ligament while in action for Clermont Auvergne, his club at the time.
