There is said to be no truth in rumours that Jason Webb, the UK polocrosse player, could be ruled out of this year’s World Cup due to a knee injury. There were rumours that the UK star might have to undergo surgery on one of his knees, but sources very close to Jason have said that though he has had a couple of problems with his knee in recent months he does not need surgery and he will be fit and healthy for the World Cup in July.

Rumours started last week that Jason might be forced to withdraw from the UK squad due to a knee injury and it will come as big relief to UK fans to hear that he should be fine for the competition. They have already lost Guy Robertson from their men’s section and when they played the Irish men’s team last year without Jason, who was ruled out due to a broken collar bone , they suffered a two nil defeat, with many people feeling that Jason could have made the difference.

The UK have a bad history of injuries at important moments, as well as losing Jason last summer they lost Sophie Sargeant to a broken arm just before the 2007 World Cup. To lose Jason, who is the men’s section captain, for the World Cup as well would have been a massive blow to their hopes of lifting the trophy on their home soil.
