Saracens duo Juan Figallo and Duncan Taylor are set for lengthy injury layoffs following knee ligament damage.
Argentinian international tighthead prop Figallo, who was forced from the field during Saracens' Premiership victory over Newcastle Falcons last weekend, has injured his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and has been ruled out for four months.
Taylor, capped 18-times by Scotland, suffered an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during Saracens' Premiership Rugby shield defeat to Exeter on Monday evening.
The extent of the utility back's injury and anticipated rehabilitation period is yet to be confirmed, the 29-year-old is set to see a specialist in the coming days.
