Dan Biggar looks set to miss the first few rounds of the Six Nations following an injury suffered in the Ospreys’ game against Clermont Auvergne.
The Wales’ fly-half was taken off with a shoulder issue in the region’s 24-7 defeat to the Top 14 outfit, which ended their participation in the tournament.
According to the BBC, the 28-year-old will be absent for the games against Scotland, England and Ireland with him set to return for the final three matches.
Biggar has become first choice pivot for Warren Gatland’s men over recent years and his absence will be a blow to the head coach.
With Rhys Priestland also out, either Rhys Patchell, Owen Williams or Gareth Anscombe are in the line to take the playmaking berth.
