Ireland and Ulster flanker Stephen Ferris has undergone surgery after being injured in a RaboDirect PRO12 game last month.

Ferris suffered a tendon problem which occurred as a consequence of ankle damage sustained during Ulster's fixture against Edinburgh.

He missed Ireland's entire autumn Test programme as a result, with the operation coming just over eight weeks before the RBS 6 Nations opener against Wales in Cardiff.

In a statement, Ulster said: "Stephen will be reviewed in the coming weeks to establish an accurate time period for recovery and to assess when he will be fit to return to play."
