Ospreys hooker Scott Baldwin apologises for lion bite

Rugby


Ospreys hooker Scott Baldwin has apologised for missing his side’s 44-25 PRO14 defeat to the Cheetahs on Friday after he was bitten by a lion.

Baldwin, who required stitches on Thursday following the incident, took to social media to announce his regret at trying to stroke a lion while in South Africa.

The 29-year-old didn’t reveal when he was likely to return to action but did state he “should be up and running around soon enough”.

Ospreys next face Scarlets at the Liberty Stadium on Oct. 07 and it remains unknown whether Baldwin will be fit in time ready for the match.

However, head coach Steve Tandy did reveal after the incident that he should be back within the “next couple of weeks” which would make the fixture against Clermont Auvergne on Oct. 15 a more likely return date.
