Date published: May 25 2016

Ospreys wing Hanno Dirksen will miss the start of next season after he underwent surgery on a knee injury sustained against Cardiff Blues.

The injury occurred during their Judgement Day win in April, with Ospreys Medical Performance Manager, Chris Towers, confirming the news.

"Hanno had an ACL reconstruction last week which means he is now looking at a lengthy rehabilitation period running into next season before we can look at an accurate return to play date," he told the Ospreys website.
