WP Nel, pilone della Scozia e di Edinburgh Rugby, si è sottoposto ad intervento chirurgico per risolvere il problema al collo rimediato durante la gara di Challenge Cup vinta contro gli Harlequins allo Stoop.

Non si conoscono ancora i tempi di recupero, ma dopo essere stato escluso dal 6 Nations, Nel potrebbe avere chiuso a Londra la sua stagione.

Ecco il comunicato stampa del club della capitale scozzese:

Edinburgh Rugby tighthead prop Willem Nel has undergone surgery on a neck injury sustained in his side’s win over Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop on Saturday 14 January.
 
A MRI scan on Wednesday 18 January at Spire Murrayfield Hospital revealed that Nel damaged an intervertebral disc in his neck during a significant collision during the game.

Following further assessment, surgery was deemed as an appropriate course of action.
 
Nel will now commence a rehabilitation programme, with a return-to-play date to be determined in due course.”
