Concern over Wales prop

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 09:32

INJURY UPDATE: Cardiff's Welsh international Gethin Jenkins will undergo X-rays, following a heavy collision during the Blues' tense Pro14 victory over the Dragons.

The Wales record cap holder had come on from the bench when Brad Thyer was sin-binned during the first-half at Rodney Parade.

However, he did not last wrong as he was caught on the wrong side in the tackle and was taken off for a concussion test.

"He had a nasty bang to the face," said Cardiff Blues coach Danny Wilson.

"He will have an X-ray to check there is nothing broken but he is quite confident there is not.

"It is just a case now of concussion protocols he will have to go through.

"I feel for him at the moment because he is not having a huge amount of luck. There is nobody who works harder to get on the rugby field.

"Hopefully it is a minor thing and we can get him back in the next couple of games."
