Following an MRI examination and consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon, it has been confirmed that Connacht centre Bundee Aki sustained a ruptured syndesmosis towards the end of the game with Edinburgh last week. The 24-year-old will undergo surgery to the ankle next week and is likely to be sidelined for eight to 10 weeks.
