The Ospreys’ medical team has issued an update on four players currently unavailable for selection.
Dmitri is continuing to rehab following shoulder surgery in December and is unlikely to play again this season.
Ma’afu sustained knee ligament damage against Leinster. Although he is recovering well, he’s unlikely to be available for selection before the end of the season.
Ben is continuing his recovery after presenting with some symptoms following a head knock after the Munster game.
We have sought the advice of a number of specialists and the consensus has been that it’s in Ben’s best interests to stand down and continue his recovery for the rest of the season.
Based on his current rate of improvement we are confident that Ben will be back at the start of pre-season.
Sam has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to the neck injury that forced him to withdraw from the match day 23 shortly before kick-off against Stade Francais earlier this month.
He will return with the rest of the squad as normal for pre-season training.
