Gloucester winger Karl Pryce has had a pin inserted in his foot and will miss the rest of the season.
Pryce faces a summer of rehabilitation
The 20-year-old, who joined the club in October from league side Bradford, refractured a bone in his left foot on his Premiership debut in March.
Pryce now hopes to return to action at the start of next season.
Team-mate Mike Tindall has also had a pin inserted after breaking his right leg against Newcastle on Friday and will be out for a minimum of 12 weeks.
