Versatile Ulster back Stuart Olding, who was capped by Ireland during their summer tour of North America, has been ruled out for the rest of the 2013/14 season.
Stuart Olding sustained an injury to his right knee while playing for the Ulster Ravens in last Friday night’s win over Connacht Eagles at Deramore Park.
A scan today revealed that he has suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and will require surgery. He will therefore be out for the rest of this season.
The 20-year-old played at centre and full-back for Ulster during the current campaign, and featured at out-half for the Ravens in their 35-10 victory over the Eagles. He converted all five of their tries on the night.
