Ellis Genge has scored one try in 10 appearances for Leicester Tigers this season

Leicester Tigers prop Ellis Genge is to have shoulder surgery and is likely to be out for a couple of months.

The 22-year-old England international was withdrawn at half-time during Tigers’ defeat by Wasps on Saturday.

Head coach Matt O’Connor said: “Ellis is going to need some minor surgery which will mean a couple of months out.

“It’s obviously very disappointing for him and for us because he has been outstanding this season and has been in the England squad during the autumn.”

Meanwhile, Tigers have recalled Italy prop Michele Rizzo from a loan spell at Edinburgh Rugby and he has been registered in the squad for the European Champions Cup.
