Evans has been excluded in order to give him optimum opportunity to manage his injury.
Whilst he completed training this week, he has not been totally free of pain and with this in mind and after extended discussions between the WRU and his regional medical team, it has been decided to withdraw him from the game in order to seek further investigation and opinion.
A time scale for his absence has not been discussed at this present time.
