Wales centre Jonathan Davies is expected to be fit for Sunday’s Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa, according to skills coach Neil Jenkins.

The 31-year old was ruled out of the 20-19 quarter-final win over France with a recurrence of a knee injury which he had aggravated against Fiji, and was replaced by Ospreys’ Owen Watkin.

But ahead of Sunday’s showdown in Yokohama, Jenkins said it was looking good for the centre.

“Jon will be fine on the day, he’ll be fine,” he said. “He trained most of the week last week as well, but didn’t feel he was quite right. But it is an important game on Sunday and we need all hands on deck to get through that match.”

Of Watkin’s performance against France, Jenkins added: “Owen stepped up and he’s been there before for us, he’s an exceptional talent and did pretty well on Sunday, but again Jon is a world class player and you need your world class players fit.
