Harlequins have been hit by what looks like two season ending injuries, despite the Premiership season being several weeks away.
The club have confirmed that flanker Luke Wallace dislocated his hip during the pre-season friendly against London Irish on Saturday.
Wallace will undergo surgery next week and following this, a more accurate assessment will be given on his expected return to play.
Academy winger Jonas Mikalcius underwent surgery last week for a multi-ligament reconstruction of his left knee, which included his ACL, as a result of an injury sustained in the recent Premiership Rugby Singha 7s Series. The winger will be out of action for the entire 2017/18 season.
“We are all wishing Luke and Jonas the very best for their recovery,” Harlequins Director of Rugby John Kingston said. “The road back to full fitness will be a long one, but they are both very resilient characters and I know they will be determined to do all that they can to come back stronger.”
