Taulupe Faletau sends an emotional message to fans from his hospital bed

Taulupe Faletau has been ruled out of Rugby World Cup contention due to a clavicle injury.

The injury was sustained in an innocuous training ground incident and will require surgery.

A prognosis and return to play timeframe will be established after surgery.

Faletau has now sent an emotional message to fans via Twitter.

“Thank you for all of your messages of support,” he tweeted:

“Disappointed with how things have turned out, and to miss out on the chance to represent Wales at RWC 2019 – but it wasn’t meant to be.

“Wishing the rest of the squad every success going forward. See you soon.”
