Peers added to injury list

Lloyd Peers is set for a spell on the sidelines after damaging ankle ligaments during last weekend’s draw with Racing Metro at the Liberty Stadium.

The second row limped out of the action at half-time to join an already lengthy injury list, with Medical Performance Manager, Chris Towers, confirming the news today in his latest update.

“He has had a scan which confirms damage to ankle ligaments. We will now discuss with an ankle specialist the options for his treatment over the next few days before deciding what is the best one for Lloyd.”

Towers also issued updates on a further three players:

Dan Baker

“Dan suffered nerve damage to his shoulder in the Leinster game at the end of November. In his situation it is a case of ongoing assessment and we are unable to set a return to play date at this point, but he is unlikely to feature again before the turn of the year.”

Joe Bearman

“Joe has injured his abductor muscle and is looking at a six to eight week recovery period.”

Aaron Jarvis

“Aaron tore his pectoral muscle playing for Wales against South Africa. The scan has confirmed that he doesn’t require surgery, but he is still looking at a recovery period of around six weeks.”
