INJURY UPDATE: Edinburgh tighthead prop Willem Nel has undergone surgery on a neck injury sustained in his side's win over Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop on Saturday, January 14.

A MRI scan on Wednesday, January 18 at Spire Murrayfield Hospital revealed that Nel damaged an intervertebral disc in his neck during a significant collision during the game.

Following further assessment, surgery was deemed as an appropriate course of action.
 
Nel will now commence a rehabilitation programme, with a return-to-play date to be determined in due course.
