Rhys Webb has been given the all-clear to continue playing despite suffering a broken nose during last Friday’s RaboDirect PRO12 win over Aironi.

The scrum-half suffered the injury in an off-the-ball incident during the first half at the Liberty Stadium, leaving the field immediately.

X-rays over the weekend confirmed that initial fears of damage to the eye socket were unfounded, but the nose break was confirmed.

Head Physio, Chris Towers, said:

“Rhys suffered a depressed fracture of the nose. Over the last few days we’ve sought out expert medical opinion, and he’s been cleared as fit to continue playing.”
