Newcastle second row Andy Buist has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season after rupturing anterior cruciate knee ligaments against
Perpignan on Saturday.
The England under-21 prospect was carried off during the Heineken Cup clash and yesterday's scan revealed the extent of the damage.
Falcons boss Rob Andrew said: "We're desperately sorry for Andy to have suffered such a serious injury at a stage in his career when he was really
stepping up into the first team and performing well."
