Injury update: Tom Wood

Northampton Saints can confirm that Tom Wood was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism last month.

The 33-year-old flanker was treated promptly at Northampton General Hospital, and has been cleared to begin non-contact training from today.

“We’re naturally disappointed that Woody will not be available for when things kick off again on the 16 August,” said Director of Rugby, Chris Boyd. “But he’s an excellent professional and we know he’ll rehab diligently to hopefully be back in contention before the end of the current season.”
