Wales flanker Dan Lydiate faces months on the sidelines after breaking his left ankle while playing for the Dragons this evening. The 24-year-old was helped from the pitch at Rodney Parade during this evening's game against Edinburgh.

Lydiate, who's due to undergo surgery on Sunday, will definitely miss Wales' Autumn Test Series, while the news will also be a blow to Lions Coach Warren Gatland ahead of next summer's tour to Australia.
