Cowan given the all-clear

Date published: February 16 2015

Western Force prop Pek Cowan has been cleared to return after suffering what looked like a serious neck injury this weekend.

The Wallaby prop was stretchered off the field in a neck brace during the Force's shock win over the Waratahs on Sunday.

He was quickly taken to the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney for scans to check for any serious injury.

However he revealed on Twitter that he's been given the all clear and could be back in action as soon as next week when the Force take on the Reds.

"Thanks to everyone for the well wishes, been given the all clear, no neck or spinal abnormalities. Will be right in a week!" he said.
