The Ospreys have been rocked by news that Richard Hibbard will be out for the rest of the season.

The hooker has been struggling with a knee problem since January and he has now been told he needs surgery to repair ligament damage.

Ospreys physio Chris Towers told the club's official site: "After careful consideration the decision has been taken for Richard Hibbard to have surgery on his right knee to repair the ligament damage, in order to guarantee a good result.

"The decision to go through with this process rules Richard out for the remainder of the 09/10 season.

"However, he will work hard throughout the summer and should be back to full fitness for next season."
