GLOUCESTER prop Terry Sigley, currently on loan at Pertemps Bees, faces a month on the sidelines after breaking his arm during the Bees' defeat to Leeds on Saturday.
Sigley has a small fracture of the radius on his right arm and will spend the next four weeks in plaster, although the injury is not as severe as first thought.
The 28-year-old, who has made 37 appearances in all competitions since his debut in 2004-5 season has suffered the same injury as Alex Brown but the injury is not of the same severity.
"We have suffered a few injuries in recent weeks and Terry is the latest one but his break is not as serious as first thought," head coach Dean Ryan said.
"He will spend a few weeks in plaster and we will obviously monitor his progress. It is exceptionally bad luck because he had been playing well for Pertemps but we hope to see him back in action before too long."
