TOKYO, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Wales backrower Josh Navidi has
been ruled out of the remainder of the Rugby World Cup after
tearing his hamstring during the first half of Sunday's
quarter-final victory over France, coach Warren Gatland said on
Monday.
Gatland told a news conference that he would be replaced
with a back, rather than another forward, due to concerns over
others in the squad, principally centre Jonathan Davies, who
missed Sunday's match.
