Neath rugby star in fight for his life...
I've just been reading icWales, and I'm sad to hear that a horrific injury has left a Neath rugby player in a serious condition. Father of two Gareth Jones, aged 28, broke his spine on Sunday during his side’s match against Cardiff. Scrumbag wishes Gareth all the best in his recovery and we'll all be hoping for a quick / total recovery.
Reports are suggest Jones underwent emergency surgery on Monday night after developing a blood clot on his brain. Neath Club officials yesterday said the surgery was successful and the clot had been cleared, but the situation looks similar to the Gwyn Jones’ injury, where the Wales skipper’s career was cut short when he suffered a spinal injury playing for Cardiff in December 1997, aged 25.
