Sale Sharks captain Dan Braid has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 33-year-old has been out of action since his side's win over Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership on March 22.

Braid has scored seven tries in 23 matches for Sale during the current campaign.
