Cardiff Blues full-back Hallam Amos has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery following the injury he suffered in the win over Benetton.
The 26-year-old made it through the game despite hobbling for parts of it, but after being assessed in Wales’ Six Nations camp on Tuesday was deemed fit to travel to Edinburgh to be part of John Mulvihill’s squad in the Guiness Pro14.
However the injury flared up again in training ahead of the game and a subsequent scan has revealed damage that will require surgery to repair, bringing his season to a premature end.
Amos signed for Cardiff Blues last summer having spent his entire career at the Dragons to that point. After featuring for Wales at the Rugby World Cup he has scored one try in 10 games for Wales’ Capital Region to-date.
He now joins Josh Adams, Owen Lane, Matthew Morgan, Harri Millard and Rhun Williams on the back three injury list, with Mulvihill facing a crisis on the wing and at full-back for the remainder of the season.
