Ulster winger Tommy Bowe out for three months


The Ulster winger Tommy Bowe could miss the first three months of the season because of the wrist injury he picked up on the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia.

Bowe has had exploratory surgery to determine the extent of ligament damage, with the 29-year-old facing up to 12 weeks on the sidelines. He broke his wrist during the 22-12 victory over Queensland Reds on 8 June, but he went on to play in the second and third Tests.
