Ulster’s Paddy Wallace out for six weeks

Updated: November 18, 2011

Ulster and Ireland centre Paddy Wallace underwent surgery on Thursday to repair tendon damage in his left thumb.

The 32 year old sustained the injury during Saturday’s Heineken Cup Pool 4 game against ASM Clermont Auvergne at Ravenhill.

The club’s medical staff had hoped surgery could be avoided but after reassessment on Wednesday, a decision was taken for Wallace to have an operation.

The injury is likely to keep Wallace out of action for 6-8 weeks.
