Injury Update

Italian international Leonardo Sarto has undergone shoulder surgery.

The winger was injured during his Man of the Match performance against Leicester Tigers in the European Rugby Champions Cup last month.

Leondardo will commence a rehab programme and is expected to be unavailable for up to six months.

Centre Richie Vernon has also undergone shoulder surgery and is expected to be out for around three months having responded positively to his rehab programme.

Meanwhile, Ryan Grant (back), Adam Ashe (hip / foot), Greg Peterson (shoulder), Scott Cummings (shoulder), Tjiuee Uanivi (shoulder) and Chris Fusaro (knees) are making good progress as they continue their rehab from injury. The club would like to thank the imaging department at BMI Ross Hall Hospital for all their support.
