Season over for Benjamin

Date published: April 1 2015

Leicester have suffered an injury setback ahead of their Premiership run-in as wing Miles Benjamin was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

The 26-year-old finisher, who has been plagued by injury during his still young career, suffered a knee injury playing against Exeter Chiefs last weekend.

And according to Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill when speaking to BBC Radio Leicester, Benjamin is expected to be ruled out for eight weeks.

"With eight weeks of the season to go that is probably the last we will see of him," he said.

"It is certainly not too serious and he will make a full recovery in the next eight to ten weeks."
