Saracens utility back Alex Goode will be out for up to four months after having an operation on a chest injury.

The 31-year-old tore a pectoral muscle during the Premiership defeat by Northampton Saints last weekend.

Goode, who has won 21 caps for England, captained Sarries from fly-half as the defending champions lost 27-25.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old hooker Kapeli Pifeleti will be out for around 10 weeks with a knee injury he suffered in the same match.
