Plymouth Albion’s Rhys Oakley requires surgery after suffering spiral fracture


PLYMOUTH Albion player-coach Rhys Oakley suffered a spiral fracture of his lower left leg during Saturday’s defeat at Moseley.

The 34-year-old former Wales international forward is currently in hospital waiting to undergo an operation.

The injury happened right at the end of the first half in the vital Championship match at Billesley Common, which Albion lost 29-0. That defeat condemned Plymouth to relegation.

Albion’s recently appointed director of rugby Graham Dawe said: “It is not the way you want to end the season. Hopefully, he will make a good recovery.”

Oakley, who has previously played for Bristol, Newport, Leeds and Northampton, is out of contract at the end of this season, having joined Albion on a two-year deal from the Saints in 2013.
