Despite a positive win over Pontypridd last night Cardiff Blues were dealt a blow with the news this morning that Scott Morgan broke a bone in his hand in last nights encounter.
Speaking on cardiffblues.com Scott was naturally disappointed with the news
The team physio sent me to have an x-ray this morning and they confirmed at the hospital that Ive broken a bone in my hand. It is a blow, but Ive just got to get my head down and work hard, said Morgan.
The hand wont be put in plaster so Ill still be able to train which is good. Ill have to go to back in three weeks time to have it re x-rayed and if alls well Ill only be out of action for between three to six weeks in total. It looks like Ill miss the Ospreys game but it is possible I could be back for the Dragons match depending on what the second x-ray shows.
Despite the injury Scott was pleased with how the team performed last night.
I think from the Blues point of view it was good to put some of the patterns and structures together. I think it gave a clear indication on areas we have to work on. The forwards carried the ball a lot more so there were many positives for the squad to take out of the match.
