Newport Gwent Dragons have been dealt a major blow with the news that captain and full-back Lee Byrne is out for three to four months.

Byrne underwent shoulder surgery on Tuesday to correct an issue and now won’t return until next year.

The former Wales star moved back home this season after a stint in the Top 14 with Clermont Auvergne.

Byrne last played for Wales at the Rugby World Cup in 2011, having won 47 caps.

Hallam Amos has been released from the Wales squad and should feature for this weekend’s Pro12 clash with Munster at Rodney Parade.
