Harlequins rugby team have lost Ollie Smith and he is a major doubt for the season. Smith was taken off on a stretcher half an hour into the game at Vicarage Road and must now undergo surgery.

The 28-year-old, who has five England caps and scored a try in his one appearance for the Lions in 2005, only joined Quins last summer.

But the club say Smith is set to be out for “a number of months” after a scan.
