Cardiff Blues have this evening confirmed that Cory Allen will miss the rest of the Guinness PRO12 season after suffering an ankle injury.
The Wales international sustained a left ankle ligament injury in the defeat against Leinster Rugby last weekend at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park.
Allen, 23, has seen specialists this week and following that consultation, and in conjunction with the medical teams at the WRU and Cardiff Blues, he will now undergo surgery next week.
The centre will commence a three-month period of rehabilitation following his operation and Cardiff Blues will make relevant future announcements.
Everyone at Cardiff Blues wishes Cory the best with his rehabilitation and we look forward to seeing him back in action next season.
