Wales' Shane Lewis-Hughes ruled out for the rest of the season
Wales international Shane Lewis-Hughes will miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery. The Cardiff Blues flanker is also set to be sidelined for Wales’ summer tour of Argentina if it goes ahead. The Blues have two Guinness PRO14 games left, followed by an inaugural Rainbow Cup competition that will feature South African and PRO14 teams.
And the Welsh region also remain in European Challenge Cup contention, facing a round-of-16 appointment with London Irish next month.
“Shane Lewis-Hughes has been ruled out for the remainder of Cardiff Blues’ season following successful shoulder surgery,” the Blues said in a statement on their official website.
“The back row forward underwent surgery on Monday to stabilise his shoulder and will have a recovery period of five to six months.”
Lewis-Hughes, 23, made his Wales debut in a delayed Guinness Six Nations game against Scotland last October, while he also featured in Autumn Nations Cup defeats to Ireland and England.

Bokkes made history as first World cup winner beaten by a third tier nation in World Cup. Also made history as first Cup winner defeated in pool game. Not first back to back Cup winner. that goes to McCaw/Hansen and the ABs. Bokkes will not make Semi Finals in 23. Beaten at QF either by AB or France. Bokkes had a lucky run in 2019.. Wallabies and England have that chance in 23..Go to comments
