Rugby Union: Autumn Internationals injury doubt for Ryan Jones
Ryan Jones returned home from the Wales national squad training camp in Spala this morning (Wednesday) in order to undergo scans on an irritable shoulder.
The Ospreys back row was part of the 35-man squad preparing for the Dove Men Series against Argentina, Samoa, New Zealand and Australia – to be played out on consecutive weekends at the Millennium Stadium beginning on Saturday November 10 – at the infamous Olympic training village in Poland, but has been managing a shoulder problem which pre-dates his arrival.
The decision to send Jones home at this time is based on a preference for the facilities available in Wales to accommodate the necessary investigations and give the player the most optimal management plan for his injury.
Jones remains a full member of the squad and further details of his problem and any repercussions for selection, if at all, will become apparent once the proper investigations have been undertaken.
