Wales dealt another injury blow ahead of clash with Wallabies

5:56 am on 28 October 2010

The Wales rugby team's preparations for next week's Test against Australia were dealt a potential setback after centre Jonathan Davies twisted an ankle in training.

The in-form Scarlets centre, regarded as a certainty to start against the Wallabies, suffered the injury during training at the squad's camp yesterday.

The seriousness of Davies' injury was not immediately clear but the player also suffered an ankle knock during a Celtic League match last month.

Welsh preparations for the Australia match have already been disrupted by injuries to Lee Byrne, Leigh Halfpenny and Ryan Jones which have ruled them out of the November the 6th clash at the Millennium Stadium.
