Wales star Taulupe Faletau looks set to miss most of this season's NatWest 6 Nations after suffering a knee injury.

The powerful number eight, who has won 70 caps and featured on the last two British and Irish Lions tours, was hurt during Bath's European Champions Cup defeat against Toulon last Saturday.

And Bath have now confirmed that Faletau suffered a grade three medial knee ligament injury, which is likely to see him sidelined for 12-16 weeks.

It is understood that Faletau will see a specialist later this week to discover if surgery is required.
