Green forced to undergo surgery

14th January 2020, 17:00 by Bobbie Jackson

Scrum-half Max Green will have surgery after fracturing his leg in Bath’s Champions Cup defeat to Harlequins.

The 23-year-old left the field just 23 minutes into Friday's 25-19 Champions Cup defeat to Harlequins and the club have assessed his injury over the weekend.

Bath say Green will have an operation on Tuesday before reporting to their Performance Department for the "best rehabilitation possible".

Green only recently returned to the fold after breaking his wrist earlier in the campaign and head director of rugby Stuart Hooper admits his absence is a huge blow.

"Max is a player who has worked incredibly hard and has consistently shown what he has got to offer in our environment here," Hooper told Bath's official website.

"We're really disappointed for Max that this injury comes after what has been a frustrating period of time on the sidelines following his wrist injury in the Premiership Cup in September.

"What we do know is that Max will attack his rehabilitation and will come back from this setback to his season ready to perform again at the levels that we know that he can."
