Tom Habberfield will miss opening months of season because of injury
OSPREYS youngster Tom Habberfield could miss the first two months of the season after injuring an ankle in training.
The region already have Rhys Webb on the casualty list and now Habberfield has joined him in the wake of suffering ligament damage.
Head physio Chris Towers explained: “Tom damaged ligaments in his ankle in training at the end of last week and we were able to confirm the extent of the damage through a scan on Monday.
“Based on previous experience we could expect to see him return in around six to eight weeks.
"We plan to conduct more investigations over the next week, and once those investigations are complete will be in a better position to confirm the exact management plan for Tom.”
Tito Tebaldi will wear the No. 9 jersey against Worcester Warriors at the Liberty on Saturday, with Tom Isaacs and Tom Grabham providing cover from the bench.
