Gareth Anscombe says there is light at the end of the tunnel as he inches towards a return after 17 months on the sidelines.
The Wales fly-half suffered a serious knee injury in August 2019 and has had three operations since, forcing him miss the 2019 World Cup and 2020 Guinness Six Nations.
But Anscombe posted a video on Twitter of him jogging in training, a clear sign that he is back on the right path.
“No doubt this has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, never thought I’d be this happy just to “jog” again,” he posted.
“Just shy of 17 months out. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel.”
Anscombe was Wales’ starting fly-half in the 2019 Championship and scored 43 points in five appearances as Warren Gatland’s side romped to the Grand Slam.
He left Cardiff Blues to join Welsh rivals Ospreys in the summer of 2019 but is yet to play for his new club due to the injury.
The 29-year-old was initially ruled out for the entire 2020/21 season but Ospreys head coach Toby Booth recently suggested he could play some part later this campaign
“He’s going really well,” said Booth.
“He’s around us a lot more now because he’s able to do big sessions and bits and pieces and he’s coming along nicely, which is really encouraging for him and us.”
