Ireland wing Luke Fitzgerald has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with the knee injury sustained in Saturday's 22-15 RBS 6 Nations defeat by Italy.

Fitzgerald, a first-half substitute at the Stadio Olimpico, ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee only 12 minutes after replacing Keith Earls.

"Luke will now require surgery once the swelling settles down and will not return before the season ends," read a statement released by his province Leinster.
