Williams moves to spinal unit

Cardiff Blues Owen Williams has been transferred to Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff.

He was safely moved to the Welsh Spinal Injuries and Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at the hospital in Llandaff earlier this week to continue his long-term recovery.

Williams was admitted to Tan Tock Seng hospital in Singapore on June 22 after suffering an injury to his spinal cord at the inaugural World Club 10s third place play-off game against Asia Pacific Dragons.

Cardiff Blues and the Williams family have extended their thanks to the staff at University Hospital Wales, who had been caring for Owen since his return from Singapore.
