Ulster centre Paddy Wallace underwent surgery yesterday 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.
