Owen Williams continues to make progress as he recovers from the serious spinal injury he sustained back in June.

The Cardiff Blues have issued an update on Williams which says "Owen is now tolerating periods of time sitting up in a wheelchair, allowing him the chance to spend short periods of time outside the hospital. He is also starting to use the gym at the hospital for early upper limb rehabilitation".

Williams continues his rehabilitation in Rockwood Hospital following the injury he picked up while on Blues duty at the Singapore 10s.

"It remains very early in his recovery, but support for the #StayStrongForOws campaign worldwide has been a huge inspiration for Owen, his family and friends," the Blues statement continued. "Over 14,000 #StayStrongForOws wristbands have now been sold and fundraising continues, in association with the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, to support Owen.

"Cardiff Blues would like to reiterate its thanks to the media for the privacy and respect shown to Owen and his family over the last four months. The region will continue to share updates when available."
