Jenkins injury setback fears allayed.

Ellis Jenkins' recovery from a serious knee injury last term is bang on track as he bids to return to fitness in time for the Rugby World Cup.

Reports have circulated suggesting that his rehabilitation had hit a snag after requiring a second operation on the knee he injured against South Africa last November.

Three weeks ago, Jenkins did require a second operation but two separate sources at Cardiff Blues and Wales have confirmed that it was only a minor one to aid recovery. No fresh repair work was required and claims that there is a renewed fear among the Wales hierarchy that his World Cup prospects had suffered a fresh blow have been firmly dismissed.

The 26-year-old has been working closely with Wales' medical team to give himself the best possible chance of proving his fitness in time for the World Cup in Japan later this year.

The feeling is that his rehab is progressing well and both camps remain upbeat about his chances, though the reality is that he has always been in a real race against time to get fit for September's tournament in Japan. | Full story: Sport Wales
