It was confirmed today that Jerry Collins' anticipated arrival in Ospreylia this week has been delayed slightly due to a routine delay in the immigration process.
OSPREYS WAITING ON COLLINS ARRIVAL
Elite Performance Director Andrew Hore commented:
"An application for a work permit has been submitted through the appropriate channels and we must wait for the paperwork to be completed before Jerry is able to join the rest of the squad for pre-season training.
"It's a situation that is, unfortunately, out of our control, but is one that we are used to through our prior experience of recruiting overseas players. We fully understand and appreciate the regulations that are in place, and we just have to wait for due process to be completed. We don't expect the delay to be a lengthy one and look forward to Jerry arriving at Llandarcy soon."
