Bristol Bears winger Semi Radradra will miss the remainder of the season as he is set to undergo a surgery on his knee.

This is the 29-year-old's second surgery on his knee after sustaining a blow in the semi-finals of the sevens at the Tokyo Olympics that forced him to miss four months in the season.

The Fiji captain underwent the surgery in October last year but managed to return back to action in December.

However, Bristol director of rugby Pat Lam confirmed that Radradra has been playing with the injury for the last two weeks and is set to go under the knife after the club's exit in the Heineken Champions Cup.

“It was time to get it done ready for next season," said Lam.

“Semi is having knee surgery this week, that is season-ending for him but it gives him a good chance to rehab, recoup and be ready for the start of next season which is a positive for him.

“The beauty about it is it will all be cleaned up and he will be ready for next season.”

Bristol are positioned 10th in the Gallagher Premiership table with six wins from 20 matches.
