Wales star Jonathan Davies is set to be sidelined for around six months after suffering a foot injury.

The Welsh Rugby Union said "it is envisaged that recovery will be in the region of six months," while also confirming that 65 times-capped Davies requires surgery.

The Scarlets centre, who was hurt during a 29-21 loss to Australia three days ago, will miss Wales' remaining autumn Tests against Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa, and also potentially the entire NatWest 6 Nations.
