Bristol lock Ian Evans will miss the rest of the season after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The 30-year-old suffered the injury following a collision during Saturday's Championship win over Plymouth Albion.

Evans, who has earned 33 Wales caps and toured Australia with the British & Irish Lions in 2013, has made 18 appearances since his summer arrival.

"We're disappointed to lose Ian at such an important part of the season," said Bristol boss Andy Robinson.external-link
