Wales injury update

The Wales management team have issued a medical update on the three Ospreys players forced out of action in last Friday's defeat to Samoa.

Hooker Richard Hibbard, who left the field with a shoulder injury, is unlikely to take any further part in the series.

Hibbard sustained an injury to the AC joint of his shoulder following a collision early in the game and a final prognosis will be made available following his acute management and further medical discussion.

Dan Biggar suffered a similar injury and was also replaced during the game on Friday, but his problem is considered to be less severe and it is hoped that intense treatment and management may allow him to contribute to the remainder of the series.

Finally, Ian Evans took a knock to his knee, also during the clash with the South Sea Islanders, and his injury will be managed during the early part of the training week in order to give him every possible chance of being available this Saturday.
