Keelan Giles requires surgery after nasty football style slide tackle collision

first_imgThursday Nov 2, 2017 Keelan Giles requires surgery after nasty football style slide tackle collision Ospreys winger Keelan Giles will undergo reconstructive surgery after suffering a horrible knee ligament injury in last Friday’s Guinness Pro 14 win over the Dragons. Giles clashed with his opposite number as they both went for a loose ball, resulting in a football-style tackle.The 19-year-old winger was stretchered off from the Liberty Stadium after his chip ahead was contested by Dragons right winger Ashton Hewitt, as both players tried to kick the ball in opposite directions.Hewitt caught Giles, who flipped over and needed medical attention before being carried off.Chris Towers, Medical Performance Manager at the Ospreys, provided the following update:“Keelan has sustained a significant knee ligament injury and will require reconstructive surgery. We are currently in the process of seeking expert opinion to formulate the best course of management going forward and will provide appropriate updates when necessary.”Both players were entitled to go for the ball, so it’s a bit of a freak accident that we wouldn’t like to see again. Hewitt was okay and offered a nice touch as he went over to Giles to wish him well.Giles has already had troubles with injuries, missing out on his first Wales cap despite being in the senior squad three times.It’s a big set back for Giles, who recently signed a three-year extension to his contract at Ospreys. He is remaining positive though, tweeting: “Every setback is a setup for a comeback”.credit: devinzaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
