Newport Gwent Dragons hooker Elliot Dee will miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery on Monday.

Wales Under-20's front rower, Dee, is a product of the region's academy having played for Pontypool and Bedwas before breaking into the first team.

Dee, who has played 20 times for Lyn Jones' side this season, scoring two tries, had the operation to correct an on-going shoulder issue.

The Dragons say he is likely to be out for "several months".
