Aironi’s South African centre Dylan Des Fountain is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee, sustained in the first minute during last Saturday’s match against Ulster at Stadio Zaffanella in Viadana, home of the new Italian Magners League team.

Des Fountain will undergo surgery in the next days in Parma, putting him for the rest of the season.

“We are very sorry about Dylan – Aironi ceo Franco Tonni says -. With this injury, we lose a player with great qualities, both on and off the field. We are confident Dylan will recover and will be recovered for the end of June, when we will consider his possible return to Aironi”.

Everyone at Aironi wish Dylan Des Fountain all the best, and hope to see him back on the pitch as soon as possible.
