Jac Morgan Wales captain may miss the Six Nations 2024 due to injury

As a result of shoulder surgery, Wales’ skipper Jac Morgan will not be able to play in the Six Nations in 2024. Gatland’s men begin their campaign against Scotland on February 3 with Dewi Lake, Adam Beard and Will Rowlands standing in for the skipper. Taulupe Faletau is still a huge concern for Gatland, but there were better news regarding him.

As a result of knee surgery, Wales captain Jac Morgan is a major doubt for the 2024 Six Nations.

He will also be absent for “months, not weeks,” according to Ospreys head coach Toby Booth.

Morgan’s injury leaves Warren Gatland’s side without their skipper ahead of their Six Nations campaign, which begins on February 3 against Scotland in Cardiff and ends on March 16 against Italy.

“The operation was a success and the right thing to do – it needed to be done,” said Booth in quotes published by BBC Sport.

“He is a young man who heals quickly but the certainty about being a professional player is you know you are going to spend time injured and that resilience will be tested.

“We will look forward to getting him better off the pitch so when he comes back, which will be months not weeks, he will hit the ground running.”

In Morgan’s absence, Dewi Lake, Adam Beard, and Will Rowlands are all expected to take the armband.

Christ Tshiunza has been ruled out due to a broken foot, while Taine Plumtree may miss that Scotland opener due to a shoulder injury.

Nicky Smith, Morgan’s Ospreys teammate, will also miss the next few weeks with a shoulder injury.
