Few details on Owen Williams' injury in Singapore

Very little is known about the nature or extent of Owen Williams' injury, sustained whilst playing for Cardiff Blues against Asia Pacific Dragons in the World Club 10s on Sunday.

The Blues released a statement yesterday, saying: "Owen Williams is to remain in hospital in Singapore after sustaining an injury at the World Club 10s. Cardiff Blues will issue further updates when they are available."

The WRU said 22-year-old Williams has not travelled home with the rest of the Blues squad.
