This was the last posting on the Blues website:

"Cardiff Blues have today (Wednesday, June 25) confirmed that Owen Williams has suffered a significant injury to his cervical vertebrae and spinal cord.
He underwent an operation on Monday to stabilise a fracture and is currently recovering in hospital in Singapore.

The family of Owen Williams are now at his bedside along with senior Blues management and medical staff.

Arrangements are currently being made to co-ordinate his safe transfer home at an appropriate time.

Cardiff Blues and the Williams family would like to thank the many hundreds of well-wishers who have offered messages of support.

Cardiff Blues will be making no further comment, but will continue to share further updates when they are available. We would also ask that the privacy of Owen Williams and his family is respected at this time.

#StayStrongForOws"

In view of this very serious injury to a young upcoming Welsh player of the future and the fact that we at Tigers have a "Warm up game " against Cardiff Blues on August 29th - Perhaps we should be thinking of organising a collection on the day and other support to this player whose injury is very fortunately rare in the game.
Given our tremendous knowledge & support for our Matt then our experiences and advise too will be helpful in the long term recuperation of their Owen.
May he with the support of ALL recover to the maximum - Bless.

Sounds mildly positive. Fingers crossed
