Injury update: October 2020

Following the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign, Bristol Bears can confirming the following players will undergo treatment and rehabilitation ahead of the new season in November.

Nathan Hughes suffered a rib injury in the semi-final defeat to Wasps. That injury and resulting down time presented an opportunity to solve a longstanding knee issue and the back rower has since undergone a minor surgical procedure. Hughes’ return date will be reviewed on a week-by-week basis.

Andy Uren also missed the European Challenge cup final following a foot injury sustained in training. He is expected to return by the end of November.

Semi Radradra sustained a hamstring injury in the European title victory and the centre will be ruled out until the end of November.

Charles Piutau continues to rehabilitate with the club’s medical staff from a longstanding achilles injury. The full back is projected to return to action in January 2021.

Academy centre Harry Ascherl sustained a knee injury during training and will undergo surgery. The former Clifton College man will be ruled out until June 2021.

Meanwhile, Will Capon (ankle) and Henry Purdy (hamstring) are both expected to be fit and available for selection ahead of the new Gallagher Premiership season.
