London Irish lock forward Nic Rouse will be out for the next 12 weeks after suffering a shoulder 

 Irish Director of Rugby, Brian Smith said: “Nic was the ‘Player’s Player of the Year’ last season so it is frustrating for him that this has occurred, however the injury now allows others in our squad an opportunity to play their way into contention. Nic is a resilient player so we know he’ll bounce back stronger than ever."
