Welsh ruled out of rugby for six months

Glasgow Warriors prop Jon Welsh has been ruled out of all rugby for a minimum of six months after having surgery on the shoulder injury that forced him to return early from Scotland’s summer tour.

The 25-year-old was successfully operated on by Miss Julie McBirnie, a shoulder specialist at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, and has now begun his rehabilitation under the care of the Warriors medical team.

Welsh is expected to be unavailable for selection for a minimum of six months.

“It’s clearly disappointing for Jon and the club as a whole that he will miss a substantial amount of rugby in the first part of the season.”Head coach Gregor Townsend told the Glasgow warriors website

“He will receive excellent care and attention from our medical team as he recovers from the injury, and we look forward to welcoming him back to the fray in due course.

“On behalf of everyone at the club, I’d like to wish Jon all the best with his rehabilitation. He’s a positive character, which will stand him in good stead for the challenges ahead.”
