Wales flanker Justin Tipuric is back in training following his concussion
The Ospreys back-rower had been ruled out for the last two months
The timeframe saw Tipuric miss Wales’ tour of New Zealand and be ruled out of the Olympics
Back in full training and looking forward to the new season, Ospreys and Wales flanker Justin Tipuric is happy to have fully recovered from a concussion.
The open side missed the final two months of the season with concussion but, now recovered and playing a full part in pre-season training, he has declared himself fit and raring to go.
“It’s good to be back in training, back in and around the place” said Tipuric.
“I’m feeling healthy and enjoying pre-season as best as it’s possible to.
“I was well looked after, with excellent support from both the Ospreys and the Union medical teams. My welfare was put first, in front of everything else, and that’s important. I’m extremely grateful to everybody for that.
“It wasn’t the nicest of injuries shall we say. It was a pretty difficult time for me, sitting in the house unable to do anything for about five weeks. I’m not a good patient at the best of times. It’s nice to be able to get out and do stuff again instead of sitting, staring at walls.
“It’s been a good few weeks in fairness. It’s been hard work as you expect in pre-season but there’s definitely a good energy about the place. Last season was disappointing by our standards and everybody wants to make sure we aren’t in that place again this year.”
