I am currently undergoing specific rehabilitation training with my physio at Llanelli Scarlets and I do not feel as though I am 100 percent match-fit.
Against that background, I feel that it is best that I stand down from the current Wales squad, concentrate on regaining full fitness and then hopefully let my form enable me to regain a place in the international set-up.
I have discussed this matter with both Steve Hansen and my regional coach, Gareth Jenkins, and we are all of the same mind. I hope that a fully fit Leigh Davies will still have something to offer Wales in the future. In the meantime, I will concentrate all my efforts on playing for and captaining Llanelli Scarlets.
Leigh Davies' record:
Age: 27 (born Feb 20, 1976)
Test debut: v Italy 1996
Test points: 20 (4 tries)
