Welsh rugby player suffers serious spinal injury

A rugby player has undergone emergency spinal surgery after suffering a serious injury in a Welsh club match.

Pwllheli RFC player Mathew Parry, 35, damaged his neck during the National League game against Gwynedd rivals Bethesda on Saturday.

He has since been released from hospital to recover at home.

Pwllheli’s club chairman William Martin said: “The operation was a success [and] stabilised the situation but he remains in a lot of pain.”

The Welsh Rugby Union says it is in regular contact with the club over Mr Parry’s condition.
