Pienaar out for a possible two months

Ruan PienaarUlster say they're waiting for the result of scans on Ruan Pienaar's knee injury.

The South African international picked-up suspected ligament damage while on duty with the Springboks during last Saturday's defeat to New Zealand.

The scrum-half is expected to be out of action for up to 2 months, but Ulster say they'll know more later this week.

Pienaar looks certain to Ulster's opening two European Champions Cup games against Leicester and Toulon in October.
