Season over for Foden

Date published: January 20 2015

Northampton Saints full-back Ben Foden is set to miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury sustained in the club’s Champions Cup win at Ospreys.

Foden left the field in the 12th minute at Liberty Stadium and subsequent scans revealed a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left leg.

The 29-year-old will now undergo surgery with a view to rehabilitating for the start of the 2015/16 season.
