It is being reported in the Irish Times this morning that Stephen Ferris' career may be over as he is failing to recover from an ankle injury.

Ferris returned to action against Scarlets on 14 March this year, following 16-months of rehabilitation; however, four games later he re-injured the ankle in training and was back in the treatment room.

The 35-cap Ireland international will spend the summer period rehabilitating in the hope that he can feature next season.
