Owen surgery blow

By Ospreys Rugby

Gareth Owen could miss the entire 2011/12 campaign after suffering what has been described as a "substantial injury" in training.

The 22-year old Maesteg born back, who has 50 appearances for the Ospreys under his belt, underwent surgery this week and faces another operation at a later date.

Head Physio Chris Towers explained:

"Gareth underwent surgery on Thursday after he suffered a knee injury in training, It was a bit of a freak accident resulting in him twisting his knee, sustaining a substantial injury. As a result of this he will, in all likelihood, be out of action for the whole of the 2011/12 season.

"Thursday's operation was the first part of what will be a two stage surgical procedure to repair the damage and then reconstruct the cruciate ligament. At this stage we are unable to say anything more, but will update on his progress as and when we can."

Sad news for Gareth and i wish him a speedy recovery. Would have loved to have seen him in Scarlet.
 
 
In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Only 22 . Plenty of time for him. Real shame as he would have surely had a run of games this season to prove his worth.

Hope he gets back to full fitness. He's a talented kid who could become a very good club player if he irons out some of the flaws in his game. I wouldn't be suprised to see him down here next season. He's got 1 year left on his Ospreys deal and Nigel might fancy having a young, cheap, Welsh ball-playing centre on the books.

Been impressed with him during the recent 7's comps, looked particulary sharp in the Edinburgh 7's. Hope he makes a speedy and full recovery.
