Ulster’s Ferris out of rugby for three months

Ulster backrow forward, Stephen Ferris will miss the next three months of rugby and is almost certainly out of contention for the British and Irish Lions tour.

Ferris was reviewed last week as part of his ongoing rehabilitation from an ankle injury that he sustained in November.

The review revealed that although he had made excellent progress, some minor issues still remained. Those issues included function at the ankle continuing to cause pain.

Having considered all specialist medical opinions given, Stephen underwent successful ankle surgery in Belfast yesterday, during which fragments of bone were removed.

Stephen will be out of rugby for a further three months but following this period is expected to make a full and complete return to the game.
