Exeter will be without Dave Lewis for their pre-season run-in after the scrum-half suffered an elbow injury against Cardiff Blues last weekend.

The 25-year-old hurt his elbow in the club's 24-17 away victory, with a scan ruling him out of their upcoming games against Ulster and Worcester.

“The initial prognosis is there is no fracture, so it's going to be a bit of a wait and see,” head coach Rob Baxter told the Exeter Chiefs website.

“He (Lewis) had an MRI scan on Monday night and we're obviously hoping it won't show too much ligament damage. If that's the case, it will just be a case of getting him rehabbed, re-strengthening the joint and see how we go.

“He's certainly not going to feature this weekend against Ulster and he's unlikely to feature against Worcester. We'll just have to monitor him after the Worcester game on a week-by-week basis.”
