Williams out of Rugby World Cup

Wales face South Africa in Yokohama on Sunday looking to reach the World Cup final for the first time.

Davies is back in Gatland's XV after missing the narrow last-eight victory over France with a recurrence of an earlier knee injury.

However, Williams is out of this clash and the remainder of the tournament due to a training-ground injury.

Wales reported Williams had suffered the blow to his ankle in an accidental collision and a prognosis was still to be established.

Biggar, Halfpenny and Williams return to Wales' starting XV

Number 10 Biggar has not featured in Wales' opening two rounds, a comprehensive win over Scotland and a narrow loss to England, due to a shoulder problem, but he returns to earn his 61st cap.

Fellow British and Irish Lions Williams and Halfpenny also make the team, the former having featured and scored for Saracens against Sale Sharks on Friday to step up his comeback from an abdominal injury, while the latter was a late withdrawal against England due to an infected foot.
