Harlequins scrum-half Karl Dickson will be out for up to 10 weeks after having surgery on a hand injury.

The 33-year-old sustained the injury in the 42-9 defeat by Montpellier in the European Challenge Cup last weekend.

"Thanks to Mike Hayton for fixing my finger. He did a great job. On to rehab now," the uncapped Englishman tweeted.external-link

Dickson, who moved to the Twickenham Stoop from Bedford Blues in 2009, has scored one try in 11 appearances for Quins this season.

With first-choice scrum-half Danny Care in the England squad for the Six Nations, Tito Tebaldi will make his first Premiership start for Harlequins against Newcastle on Sunday.
