Habberfield suffers ankle injury

Tom Habberfield will miss the start of the new season after suffering an ankle injury in training.

The 21-year old scrum-half has been ruled out by the Ospreys medical team after they confirmed ligament damage.

Head Physio, Chris Towers, explained:

“Tom damaged ligaments in his ankle in training at the end of last week and we were then able to confirm the extent of the damage through a scan on Monday.  

“Based on previous experience we could expect to see him return in around six to eight weeks.  We plan to conduct more investigations over the next week, and once those investigations are complete will be in a better position to confirm the exact management plan for Tom.”
