Ospreys confirm Beard boost

8th January 2019, 17:16 by Michael Holland

Wales lock Adam Beard has escaped serious injury after Ospreys confirmed scans on his neck have come back all clear.

Beard suffered the injury in the opening minute of Ospreys Guinness PRO14 clash against Cardiff Blues at Liberty Stadium and there were fears he had suffered major damage.

However, thankfully Ospreys have issued a statement saying that is not the case.

"Adam sustained a neck injury in the first minute and was immobilised and transferred to Morriston Hospital for further assessment as a precaution," it read. "X-rays and scans were clear, and happily he was discharged later the same evening.

"Adam's recovery is going well, and he will continue to be monitored in the coming days, with confirmation of his potential availability to be confirmed later in the week."

The news also comes as a big boost to Wales, who kick off their Guinness Six Nations campaign against France in Paris on February 1.
