Harry Mallinder: Northampton Saints centre out until new year
Northampton Saints centre Harry Mallinder has been ruled out until the new year following ankle surgery.
The 20-year-old was injured in their Premiership win against Gloucester at Franklin's Gardens and missed the Anglo-Welsh Cup trip to Newcastle.
Mallinder, who has played eight 2016-17 games, required surgery to stablise the joint and may be out for eight weeks.
"Operation was a success. Thanks for all the kind messages," he said on his Instagram page.
