Thomas: Injury setback
Newport-Gwent Dragons full-back Martyn Thomas will miss the rest of the season after re-breaking his leg against Treviso on Sunday.
Thomas, who suffered a fracture-dislocation of the same leg in the derby match against the Blues in April last year will undergo surgery on the new injury.
"We are bitterly disappointed for Martyn," said Dragons rugby manager Robert Beale, speaking to the region's website.
"He has had a hard road to recovery from his previous injury and this is a heavy blow for him.
"However, he has shown great strength of character through his rehabilitation and we are confident that he will meet this next challenge head-on."
In other injury news coming out of the Rodney Parade outfit, lock Luke Charteris picked up an injury to his ribs and will undergo further assessment this week.
Wing Aled Brew, who twisted his ankle in the match on Sunday is expected to be back for the region's clash with the Ospreys on Friday, April 15.
