Rhys Webb’s autumn series is in doubt after the Wales international suffered suspected ankle ligament damage in their 32-8 defeat to South Africa in Cardiff.
The Ospreys scrum-half was replaced by Gareth Davies with 15 minutes remaining after he had his right ankle caught under Australian forward Rob Simmons’ foot who was tackling Ross Moriarty. He was then stretchered off, with his right ankle in a compression boot and coach Rob Howley gave an update following the game.
“He’s being assessed medically,” said Howley. “He’s been cleared out in the tackle and his ankle has swollen. I don’t think there’s any breakage, but it looks as if ankle ligaments have been damaged in some way.”
Wales hope to have Jonathan Davies back for the coming game after Howley said he was withdrawn as a precaution as the centre had a tight hamstring.
“With Jonathan Davies we made a decision that there’s a lot of rugby to come. We could have possibly played him today. But we made a common sense decision. Hopefully that makes him available for next weekend.”
