Welsh rugby have been handed a huge boost as Ospreys head coach Toby Booth reveals Gareth Anscombe set to play in Rainbow Cup.
The 27-cap player has been on the sidelines since August 2019 after damaging knee ligaments playing for Wales against England at Twickenham.
The Ospreys reckon he could be back for the Rainbow Cup, the new competition that’s due to be contested by PRO14 teams and four South African sides, the Bulls, Lions, Sharks and Stormers, between April 17 and June 19.
Answering questions at the region’s midweek press call, Ospreys head coach Toby Booth said of the 29-year-old Anscombe: “He’s 200 yards from me now, doing some running drills.
“He starts on his skills programme, so the signs are encouraging. It’ll be good to see.
“Ideally, getting him out there for the Rainbow Cup would be awesome.”
