Lifeimi Mafi will miss the opening games of the 2010/2011 season as he recovers from a shoulder operation.
The 28 year old had the operation last Tuesday for an injury that has been troubling him throughout the season and now uses the closed season to have the problem sorted out.

Other than that, news concerning long term injured is positive with Denis Leamy (knee), Donnacha Ryan (shoulder), Darragh Hurley (eye), Felix Jones (neck) and Barry Murphy (leg) all expected to be fully fit and available for the opening pre-season games against Leicester Tigers on August (20th). The venue for that game has yet to be confirmed and nor has it been decided where the second pre-season game, versus Gloucester (27th Aug) will take place.

Hurley who sustained an eye tear that subsequently became infected has been cleared by medics to take full part in training while Leamy and Ryan are both recovering well from their injuries and expected back with Hurley for pre-season when it starts at the end of June.

Barry Murphy is still at the recovery stage but also expected to report for full training then while Felix Jones has taken part in the last couple of training sessions before season's end and should be cleared for full contact when pre-season begins.
