Ospreys centre Scott Williams is set to miss the start of the autumn internationals for Wales following a hamstring injury.

The 27-year-old sustained the blow during Ospreys' PRO14 encounter against Cheetahs in Swansea last weekend where he left the field in the 49th minute.

A statement released by Ospreys confirmed that Williams is set to be on the sidelines for between six to eight weeks.

“The medical team completed their investigations earlier this week and the summer signing has begun his rehab programme, looking at a best case scenario of a six to eight week recovery timescale," read the statement.

Apart from Williams, Lloyd Ashley will also be out of action for a similar period after suffering an injury on Friday when he represented the Development team against Scarlets A side.

“Ashley injured his AC joint on Friday evening playing for the Ospreys Development team against Scarlets A in Bridgend and is looking at a spell on the sidelines of six to eight weeks”, the statement added.

Ospreys currently are at the top of the Conference A table in PRO14 with two wins from as many games and are set to face Munster next at Irish Independent Park on 15th September.
