Bristol have been dealt a major injury setback with ace centre and former NRL star Semi Radradra ruled out for an anticipated four months.

Bristol rugby director Pat Lam revealed following his team's 25-20 Gallagher Premiership victory over west country rivals Bath that Fiji international Radradra is set for knee surgery on Monday after being hurt during the Olympic sevens tournament in Tokyo.

Lam said: "Semi is going to have to have surgery on his knee.

"We are looking at him having surgery on Monday, and he will end up with probably 16 weeks (out). It was in the semi-final in the Olympics.

"At the end of the day, there is a lot of rugby to be played when he gets back.

"We will certainly be on the look-out for a replacement to come in for that period of time when he is out.

"It is around his cartilage and ligament. The good news is that the surgery will fix it 100 per cent."

Bristol condemned Bath to a third successive Premiership defeat of the season.
