Halaholo to undergo ACL surgery

Posted by

It has been confirmed that Cardiff Blues centre Willis Halaholo suffered damage to his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in Saturday’s defeat against Leicester Tigers.

The 29-year-old will undergo surgery next week before undergoing rehabilitation. The severity of the injury is unknown, but ACL injuries generally result in a lengthy period on the sidelines, with Gareth Anscombe and Ellis Jenkins having suffered similar and subsequently being ruled out for up to 12 months.

Halaholo picked up the injury on one of his typically destructive runs during the first half, stepping past two players but staying down upon the conclusion of the carry and leaving the field a few minutes later.

It also means that Halaholo will miss out on playing for Wales, having been called up by Wayne Pivac for this weekend’s uncapped game against the Barbarians at the Principality Stadium.

Scott Williams has been called up in his place.
