Scarlets winger Mike Poole is recovering after suffering a fractured and dislocated neck while playing for Llanelli against Swansea on December 28.

The winger, who is contracted to the Scarlets and Wales Sevens, was immediately taken to hospital and has since undergone two operations.

"Mike's injury was serious; the surgery undertaken has been successful and thankfully there has been no loss of function as a result of the injury," Scarlets head of medical Andy Walker said. "He will undergo a further CT scan later to ascertain whether he will need one further operation; however to date he has progressed well, the injury has been stabilised and he is recovering.

Simon Easterby, Scarlets head coach added: "Everyone at the Scarlets and especially the coaches and all our players send Mike and his family their very best wishes. We have been in close contact with the hospital teams, Mike and his family throughout and we are all pleased to see him making good progress."
