Out: Setaimata Sa

London Irish centre Setaimata Sa faces yet another spell on the sidelines, having been ruled out for two months with a calf injury.

Sa signed for the Exiles from league side Catalan Dragons in 2012, but has only made four appearances for the Premiership club; the most recent of which coming in Irish's 79-3 Challenge Cup victory over Lusitanos.

The 26-year-old picked up the knock late on in the rout, and was withdrawn just after hour mark.

"Sa picked up a nasty calf injury which is disappointing," said director of rugby Brian Smith.

"We just don't seem to be able to get him on the park at the moment which is very frustrating for him, supporters, me and the rest of the club.

"He's a quality player and it's a shame to see such a young and talented bloke hamstrung by these constant run of injuries.

"It's a significant calf injury so we're talking six to eight weeks (out), possibly longer."
