Fourth of July with USA Eagles!

Cardiff Blues have today (Wednesday, June 25) confirmed that Owen Williams has suffered a significant injury to his cervical vertebrae and spinal cord.

He underwent an operation on Monday to stabilise a fracture and is currently recovering in hospital in Singapore.

The family of Owen Williams are now at his bedside along with senior Blues management and medical staff.

Arrangements are currently being made to co-ordinate his safe transfer home at an appropriate time.

Cardiff Blues and the Williams family would like to thank the many hundreds of well-wishers who have offered messages of support.

Cardiff Blues will be making no further comment, but will continue to share further updates when they are available. We would also ask that the privacy of Owen Williams and his family is respected at this time.
