Surgery rules Tommy Bowe out for season

Ulster and Ireland wing Tommy Bowe undergoes knee surgery which rules him out for the rest of the season.

Ulster and Ireland wing Tommy Bowe has been ruled out for the remainder of the season following surgery on a knee injury.

Bowe suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury and meniscal damage during his country's 43-20 loss to Argentina in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals.

He will miss the Six Nations, which starts in February 2016, and Ulster's European Champions Cup campaign.

The 31-year-old is the third Ulster player to undergo an operation in recent weeks, following in the footsteps of Iain Henderson and Jared Payne.
