Rib injury rules John out of action

Ben John will miss the forthcoming games against Edinburgh at the Liberty Stadium on Friday night and Munster at Thomond Park next weekend after damaging rib cartilage during the defeat to Connacht.

The centre, who has featured on the wing in the last two PRO12 games, was forced off just 10 minutes into the game at the Sportsground last Friday evening and after being checked out by the Ospreys medical team has been ruled out of action.

Head Physio, Chris Towers, confirmed:

“Ben will be unavailable for the next two games and should be good for a return to action in around four weeks.”
