James Davies is to undergo surgery on a hip injury, ruling him out of action for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
The Wales international flanker hasn’t played since the bronze medal match at the Rugby World Cup at the start of November.
A Scarlets spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, James continues to struggle with a hip injury that has prevented his full return to training. A decision for surgical intervention to facilitate his recovery has been made. It is hoped that this will allow James to begin the 2020-21 season fit and healthy.”
