Wales centre Jonathan Davies has been ruled out for six months with a foot injury sustained in Saturday's defeat to Australia.

Warren Gatland's side also meet world champions New Zealand on November 25 before hosting South Africa on December 2.

And now the injury requires surgery, meaning he will be out for around six months.

They play Georgia this Saturday, before facing New Zealand and South Africa in the remainder of the Under Armour Series.

Roberts captained Wales for their June Tests against Tonga and Samoa but failed to make Warren Gatland's autumn squad as the Wales head coach opted to experiment with a second playmaker at inside centre.

The 29-year-old missed the 2015 World Cup due to a knee ligament injury, but he has been in world-class form throughout this year.

The extent of Davies' injury is yet to be confirmed by Wales although an announcement is expected on Tuesday morning.

"He is a world-class rugby player, there is no doubting that".

"The sad thing is he's been playing incredibly well, and it was right at the end of the game as well".

Jamie Roberts has already been called up as a replacement for Davies.
