Alun Wyn undergoes surgery on injured elbow

Injured second row Alun Wyn Jones will now face a period of intensive rehab as he looks to return in time for next month's Heineken Cup quarter-final against Biarritz.

Jones suffered the injury during the first half of Wales' dramatic win over Scotland at the Millennium Stadium, but was able to play on until the very end of the game. Tests post-match revealed a chipped bone and ligament damage which required surgical intervention. Having now undergone the surgery, Jones is now facing a fight to be fit in time for the trip to San Sebastian.

Ospreys Physio, Chris Towers issued a word of caution as the player began his rehab:

"Alun Wyn has undergone surgery to repair the ligament damage and remove some debris from the joint, and has already started his intensive rehab program following the op. He is pushing hard to try to be available for the Heineken Cup quarter-final against Biarritz next month, but this is very much a 'best-case' scenario and we will assess his chances again nearer the time."
