The Cardiff Blues forward, who will join Wasps this summer, had surgery on Wednesday, the Welsh Rugby Union announced.

"Bradley Davies underwent surgery yesterday for a damaged hamstring, ruling him out of contention of Wales' tour of South Africa," the WRU said in a statement.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland is already without players like Sam Warburton, Leigh Halfpenny, Justin Tipuric and Scott Williams because of injuries.

Gatland will announce a 31-man tour party after Friday night's senior Wales trial match in Swansea, with the squad set to be captained by Ospreys lock Alun-Wyn Jones.

Wales face the Springboks in Durban on June 14, and then Nelspruit seven days later.
