SIX NATIONS BLOW FOR BATH’S FALETAU


BATH number eight Taulupe Faletau is set to miss Wales’ Six Nations campaign after breaking his arm again.

The 28-year-old British Lions forward made an impressive return to action after 13 weeks out with a fractured arm in Bath’s 18-16 Champions Cup victory on Saturday.

But it has now emerged that Faletau suffered another fracture on his return that we will him out for another eight weeks.

Last week fellow Bath back-rower Sam Underhill was ruled out of England’s Six Nations after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury.
