Ulster Injury Update

An injury report from the RaboDirect PRO12 leaders…

Tommy Bowe suffered a knee injury in the closing stages of Ulster’s 9 points to 10 Heineken Cup defeat to Northampton Saints at Ravenhill last night. An initial scan this morning revealed that he has sustained significant lateral ligament damage to his right knee. He will undergo surgery later this week to repair the damage. At this stage it is not possible to put a timescale on how long his recovery period will be. A further update on this will be issued following the surgery, when the full extent of the injury will be known.

Dan Tuohy injured his calf in the game and will be assessed tomorrow morning (Monday), as will Paddy Jackson who sustained a dead leg mid-way through the second half. An update on their fitness will be issued tomorrow afternoon.
