After being ruled out for “in the region of six months” with a foot injury, Wales centre Jonathan Davies is set to miss the 2018 Six Nations.
In Saturday’s 29-21 loss to Australia, the 29-year-old was injured and needs surgery due to which he may miss the rest of the season.
Wales defence coach Shaun Edwards says: “He’s a massive loss there’s no doubt about that. His are big shoes to fill and we have a lot of work to do over the next three weeks and through the six nations because, I’m not saying he’s irreplaceable, but it’s definitely one of the positions (players) you least want to lose.”
Edwards added: “It is probably his third really big injury in the last three or four years. Our thoughts are obviously with him mostly and we wish him a speedy recovery.He’s probably one of the form, if not the form number 13 in world rugby and he’s going to take some replacing isn’t he?”
Wing Steff Evans was replaced in the second half against the Wallabies by Hallam Amos after scoring Wales’ first try. To this Wales coach Warren Gatland immediately responded saying: “He’s fine, he’s just got a knock on the knee. It wasn’t an injury replacement. He’s run himself into the ground and taken a couple of big hits. We felt it was about the right time to make a change.”
