Returning hookers boost Ospreys

The Ospreys are set to welcome back hookers Scott Baldwin and Sam Parry from injury ahead of the new season.

Baldwin underwent surgery on a foot injury he picked up in Wales training at the start of February, while Parry hasn’t played since the end of that month due to a chest injury.

Medical Performance Manager, Chris Towers, said:

“Scott is progressing well and will continue his rehab through the pre-season period with the expectation that we will be ready to play at the start of the new Guinness PRO14 season.

“As for Sam, he will complete his rehab during the off-season and we expect him to start pre-season training with the rest of the main group later this month.”
