Shoulder surgery ends Johnny Williams’ season

Date published: April 12 2021

Scarlets centre Johnny Williams has suffered a blow after it was confirmed that he requires surgery on a shoulder issue.

Williams will this week undergo an operation on the injury he picked up in the Champions Cup loss to Sale Sharks one week ago in Llanelli.

The Wales international centre sustained the problem in the first period of the round of 16 meeting at Parc y Scarlets, which Sale won 57-14.

Scarlets revealed in a statement that the 24-year-old midfield back will be targeting a return to action in preparation for the 2021/22 season.
