Welsh centre Jonathan Davies’ season is now over in what is a body blow for Scarlets and Welsh rugby at large.
Davies was ruled out for six months with a foot injury sustained in Wales’ November defeat to Australia but it looks now that his recovery will take longer again.
Davies went down in the closing seconds of the 29-21 loss in Cardiff and received treatment on the pitch after the final whistle had been blown.
The Welsh Rugby Union confirmed at the time that the issue would require surgery, placing a six-month estimate on his recovery.
It has now been confirmed that he will not return to rugby this season.
Thank you to everyone who voted. Honoured to receive Wales sports personality of the year. Apologies I couldn't make it the plaster didn't fit in the DJ trousers. Proud to see #MikeFox and Julie receiving it on my behalf. #WSA2017 pic.twitter.com/R5YoqBnJfx
