The veteran second line, Alun wyn jones, he injured the same shoulder that kept him out of the way at the start of the tour of the British & Irish Lions to South Africa. The captain of Welsh was forced to leave the field of play in the 19th minute in the loss against the All blacks 54-19 and there is concern as to whether the remainder of the November window will be present against the Springboks, Fiji and Australia.
However, Red Dragons head coach Wayne Pivac said: “Talking to him in the locker room, it feels pretty good. We will do a scan as a precautionary measure, but you do not feel bothered. Obviously at that point he couldn’t keep playing, but he feels a lot better, so that’s an advantage. “
When asked if Jones, who played 149 international rugby matches, could follow the rest of the November window, the coach stated that “I don’t think we will rule out Alun Wyn Jones after what happened in South Africa. We will do the corresponding studies and there we will surely know a little more about what it is about “.
On the other hand, fortune does not look so promising for the wing Ross Moriarty, who was replaced during the match shortly before the break also due to a shoulder problem.
