Surgery for AWJ

Ospreys captain Alun Wyn Jones has been ruled out of the remainder of the region's Heineken Cup Pool 2 campaign after sustaining an injury to his AC joint (shoulder) during Wales' game against Argentina on Saturday.

After carefully reviewing the scans and discussing the best management of the injury with specialists, in light of the extent of the ligament damage, the recommendation was made for Alun Wyn to undergo surgery to reconstruct the AC joint ligaments in order to give him the best chance of making a full recovery.  

Chris Towers, Ospreys Head Physio, confirmed:

“He is due to undergo the surgery at the end of this week, and we will be looking at a 12-16 week rehab process post-op to get him back on the field.”
