Baldwin apologises for his 'stupidity'

WATCH VIDEO OF LION'S ATTACK: Wales hooker Scott Baldwin has issued an apology to Osprey fans, following the bizarre incident that saw him bitten by a lion.

As a result of the injury he was ruled out of Friday's Pro14 defeat to the Cheetahs.

Wales international Baldwin sustained a hand injury that required stitches when he made the mistake of trying to stroke the animal last Wednesday, during a visit to a game lodge ahead of his team's match in Bloemfontein.

Baldwin was criticised by Ospreys coach Steve Tandy, who said: " When you put your hand in a fence where there is a lion, then you will get bitten. It was pretty stupid on Scott's behalf and he is pretty lucky.

" It's probably one of the silliest things I've even been involved in, but thankfully he is okay and hopefully he will be back up and running in the next couple of weeks."
