Lewis, who is yet to feature in the tournament, has returned to Cardiff Blues after suffering a neck problem that prevents him from taking any further part.

John is yet to make an appearance for Wales. He was named in the starting line-up for last year's Six Nations finale against Scotland but the match was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Lewis is the third player to officially leave Wales' squad, following the departures of Dan Lydiate and Josh Macleod.
