Surgery rules Dirksen out

Hanno Dirksen has undergone surgery on the knee injury sustained in the Judgement Day win over Cardiff Blues and will miss the start of the 2016/17 season.

Medical Performance Manager, Chris Towers, confirmed the news today, saying:

“Hanno had an ACL reconstruction last week which means he is now looking at a lengthy rehabilitation period running into next season before we can look at an accurate return to play date.”
