While Hampshire does not need an operation to repair the break, Arundel is set to undergo major reconstructive surgery.

“We wish Joe all the best in his recovery and look forward to seeing him back next season,” said a club spokesman.

Arundel, 29, who is under contract with Trinity to the end of 2021, was helped from the field on the stroke of half-time during his side’s 32-15 defeat by the Tigers.
