The Ospreys have confirmed that Rhys Webb’s season is officially over.
Webb suffered a knee injury before the Six Nations and did not take part in the tournament. He has now undergone surgery on the knee.
A statement from the Pro14 side reads: “Rhys pulled out of Wales’ Six Nations campaign and went on to have surgery on an ongoing knee problem.
“He will be unavailable for the remainder of this season and his focus is now on getting his recovery right for next season.”
He has played 154 times for the Ospreys and 31 times for Wales.
Toulon claimed when they signed him that they had reached an agreement so he could continue playing for Wales, but Wales’ new Senior Player Selection Policy (SPSP) could preclude him from playing for Wales while at Toulon.
He has signed a three-year contract with the Top 14 side.
The club also stated that hooker Sam Parry’s season may also be over. Parry “injured a chest muscle in the Cheetahs game and is currently focused on his rehabilitation. At this stage it is not anticipated that he will take any further part in the regular playing season.”
