Wales forward Dan Lydiate's knee injury "doesn't look good," coach Rob Howley has confirmed.

Osprey Lydiate suffered the injury just before half-time in Wales' record 27-13 win over South Africa and was eventually carried off on a stretcher.

"He's got a knee injury. We'll wait to see what the medics say, but it doesn't look too good at this moment in time," Howley told BBC Radio Wales.

Liam Williams also suffered a twisted ankle and left in a protective boot.

"It was just a bit of a twist," said Scarlets player Williams.
