Wales' injury problems are on the mend
Thursday 16 February 2012
Wales' injury situation appears to be easing ahead of the match against England at Twickenham. George North left the field during the 27-13 win over the Scotland on Sunday with a sprained ankle and the Scarlets wing is undergoing intense rehabilitation with a view to resuming training next week.
Hooker Huw Bennett is also having intense treatment on a calf injury and hopes to be back in training next week, while Ryan Jones is confident he can overcome a thigh injury and take his place in the line-up for Twickenham on Saturday week. Captain Sam Warburton should also be fit after missing the Scotland match with a thigh problem.
