People will panic, because he's so influential.
But Wales have coped without him for the last 12 months.
Big role for Navidi coming up.
The British and Irish Lion broke his arm twice last season and missed Wales’ Six Nations Grand Slam and has not played in a Test since March 2018.
A statement by the Welsh Rugby Union said: “The Wales squad and management would like to wish Taulupe the very best with his recovery.”
