Scarlets head coach Dwayne Peel has issued an injury update to the media ahead of Saturday’s BKT United Rugby Championship Round 16 clash with Cell C Sharks.
Speaking at his week’s press briefing at Parc y Scarlets, Peel said: “Johnny McNicholl is not going to be available for a while with his knee injury but he will be touch-and-go to play this season which is more positive than what we thought when he came off against Munster.
“Jon Davies is still struggling with his calf/Achilles. I don’t expect him to play again this season.”
Peel added: “Johnny Williams getting through that game in Munster was huge for us and huge for him because he has been a long time out and he performed really well.”
When asked about which of his Welsh Six Nations players are available, Peel said: “The guys who played a lot of rugby like Ken and Wyn aren’t. Ken is also dealing with a new-born baby so I am sure he is keeping busy! Kieran (Hardy) is available, I am looking forward to seeing him back in the fold.”
