Ospreys back row forward Dan Baker is out for the season after suffering knee ligament damage.

The 25-year old was injured in Ospreys' 26-21 Champions Cup defeat against Clermont Auvergne.

Capped three times by Wales, Baker will now require 'reconstructive surgery.'

"We don't expect to see him playing again this season," Ospreys said in a statement, while also confirming Justin Tipuric will miss the Pro14 derby against the Dragons this weekend.

Tipuric injured his thigh muscle during the warm-up against Saracens at the weekend, a match the Welsh region lost 36-34.

Ospreys also confirmed Scott Otten is out for eight weeks, while Kieron Fonotia and Jeff Hassler are both undertaking concussion protocol.
