Domachowski and Big Nick ruled out of Benetton clash

Posted by

Cardiff Blues head coach John Mulvihill has confirmed that Corey Domachowski and Nick Williams will miss this weekend’s Guinness Pro14 trip to Benetton.

Both players departed during Saturday’s European Challenge Cup defeat against Leicester Tigers at the Arms Park, and will join Kris Dacey, Dmitri Arhip, Rory Thornton, Ben Murphy, Ellis Jenkins, Josh Navidi, Willis Halaholo and Rhun Williams in the treatment room.

Domachowski picked up an ankle injury mid-way through the first half against Leicester, while Williams was forced off at half-time having suffered a hamstring injury, with both players set to miss the next few weeks of action.

Arhip (bicep) and Robinson (shoulder) will also continue to be sidelined for the next few weeks, but all four, as well as Jenkins and Navidi, are hopeful of a return at some point during the run of festive derbies.
