Williams Transferred To Rookwood Hospital #StayStrongForOws

Cardiff Blues have today (Wednesday, July 9) confirmed that Owen Williams has been transferred to Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff.

Owen was safely moved to the Welsh Spinal Injuries and Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at the hospital in Llandaff this week to continue his long-term recovery.

Cardiff Blues and the Williams family would like to thank staff at University Hospital Wales who had been caring for Owen since his return from Singapore.

Messages of support from the rugby community and wider world continue to be a huge source of inspiration for Owen, his family and friends at this time.

Cardiff Blues would like to thank the media for the privacy they have shown Owen Williams and his family over the last two and a half weeks and ask that this continues to be respected.

The region will continue to share any appropriate updates when they are available.
