Season over for centre Allen

Wales and Cardiff Blues outside centre Cory Allen has been ruled out for the remainder of the season as he requires surgery on his ankle.

Allen suffered the injury against Leinster last weekend when on PRO12 duty with the Blues, with a subsequent scan revealing the bad news.

“And with that comes the end of my season????! Gutted to have to go under the knife again. Can only hope for an injury free season next season,” Allen said on his Instagram account as his rotten luck with injury continues.

Allen scored a hat-trick of tries for Wales against Uruguay in the World Cup before another injury struck, with this another blow to his career.
