    Wales' Adam Jones is set to be sidelined for six months and will have surgery on torn shoulder ligaments.

    The British & Irish Lions prop was injured in the second Test defeat by South Africa following a dangerous charge by Bakkies Botha.

    Jones enhanced his scrummage reputation after his performance against Springbok prop Tendai "The Beast" Mtawarira.

    The hit may have been illegal but he did not deserve the 2 week ban.

    Even Gatland said that the Lions did not expect anything as they were happy with the hit and so was Jones.

    Shame. He's an excellent player when he can be bothered, though sometimes he has periods where he just likes to view the action, rather than take part.

    Will be missed, massively, as the Welsh front row could have caused the 'Boks hell in the Autumn.

    Shoulder girdle ligaments are serious problem

    Hope he will be OK

    Sad to hear, bet he was looking forward to meeting the Boks in the A.I
    Hopefully he'll be back in top form for the 6 nations

    I heard 9 months?

    Anyway, he is very unlucky.

    No way am i going to feel any sympathy for Botha after the pathetic armband stunt.

    Good luck to him, but you have to wonder if he'll ever play again.

    My favourite of the Hair Bears. He showed how much the front row matters, and how badly the selectors fewked up.
