The Ospreys remain hopeful of having Alun-Wyn Jones available for their Heineken Cup quarter-final against Biarritz after he underwent surgery on his elbow injury.

The Wales lock (pictured) chipped the bone and suffered ligament damage during his country's astonishing 31-24 RBS 6 Nations victory against Scotland on February 13.

The 24-year-old has started a rehabilitation programme that the Liberty Stadium side hope will see him ready to face the French side in San Sebastian on April 10.

Ospreys physio Chris Towers told the club's official website: "Alun-Wyn has undergone surgery to repair the ligament damage and remove some debris from the joint, and has already started his intensive rehab following the op.

"He is pushing hard to try to be available for the Heineken Cup quarter-final against Biarritz next month, but this is very much a 'best-case' scenario and we will assess his chances again nearer the time."
