Wales prop Gethin Jenkins will miss the start of the Six Nations after undergoing surgery on a ruptured bicep.
The Cardiff Blues front-row faces three months on the sidelines after suffering the injury in their match against Glasgow.
Despite the injury setback, Blues head coach Danny Wilson is confident Jenkins can return ahead of schedule.
“Gethin is having surgery today on a ruptured bicep which means he will be out for around three months but knowing him he’ll be back before that,” Wilson said.
“He is one of the most professional men in terms of prehab, rehab and looking after his body. Whatever he is asked to do to get that right I know he will do it and I imagine he’ll be back before three months.
“It’s a big blow for us and it’s a big blow for Wales. He keeps proving to people that age is just a number.
“His performances for Cardiff Blues and Wales have been of a real high standard. That’s how he got the shirt back with Wales and that’s how he’s kept hold of it.”
