Injury ends Cory Hill's Rugby World Cup

Wales have been struck by an injury blow as second-row Cory Hill was ruled out for the rest of the Rugby World Cup with a stress fracture.

The injury is to his fibula and he has been unable to recover significantly so will return to Wales and continue his recovery at his region.

Bradley Davies, capped 65 times by Wales and who has featured in two previous Rugby World Cups, has now been called in as Hill's injury replacement and will arrive in Japan on Wednesday.

Wales kicked off their tournament with an impressive 43-14 victory over Georgia and face Australia next on Sunday, September 29 in a vital pool showdown before tackling Fiji (Wednesday, October 9) and finally Uruguay on Sunday, October 13.
