The six-cap All Blacks flanker has undergone a minor operation and will miss the Sharks’ final two games of the campaign, against Leicester Tigers and London Irish.

The 33-year-old former Auckland Blues loose-forward has been sidelined since Sale’s home victory over Northampton Saints on March 22.

Sale rugby director Steve Diamond hailed his skipper’s influence at the north west club this term, with the Sharks having secured a place in next term’s European Rugby Champions Cup.

“His leadership is second to none, he’s been fantastic for the club,” Diamond told BBC Radio Manchester.
