Pumas fullback needs surgery

6:14 am on 3 October 2012

Argentina's fullback Martin Rodriguez will be out of action for the rest of this year after discloating his shoulder against the All Blacks last Sunday.

Rodriguez needs an operation on the shoulder in the coming days and apart from this weekend's Rugby Championship test against the Wallabies in Rosario, he'll also miss the Pumas November internationals against Wales, France and Ireland.
