Double injury blow for Ospreys

Date published: September 14 2018

The Ospreys have confirmed that Lloyd Ashley and Scott Williams are set for extended spells on the sidelines after sustaining injuries last weekend.

Ashley injured his AC joint on Friday evening playing for the Ospreys Development team against Scarlets A in Bridgend and is looking at a spell on the sidelines of six to eight weeks.

Williams suffered a hamstring injury during Saturday night’s Liberty Stadium bonus point win over the Cheetahs. The medical team completed their investigations earlier this week and the summer signing has begun his rehab programme, looking at a best case scenario of a similar six to eight week recovery timescale.
