John and Walker ruled out

Centre, Ben John, and wing, Eli Walker, have been ruled out of Friday night’s Guinness PRO12 clash with Glasgow.

Medical Performance Manager, confirmed the news, issuing the following update on their injuries:

“Ben has been sidelined with a groin problem since the Munster game at the start of the month.

“We have consulted with Dr Mark Gillett of the specialist hip and groin service at Spire Little Aston. The preferred course of treatment for Ben at this time is surgery and Mark has referred us to hernia surgeon, Dr Muschaweck.

“Ben will undergo surgery this weekend, after which we will be in a position to review and plan his return to play schedule.

“Eli misses out this week due to a foot injury sustained against Cardiff Blues last week and is currently being monitored on a day to day basis.”
