Taulupe Faletau tweets statement of intent following latest injury setback

Taulupe Faletau is set to miss the Six Nations after again breaking his arm.

Faletau suffered a fractured forearm playing for Bath in October and missed the autumn international series.

But the Wales number eight is keeping his hopes up, tweeting this today:

Faletau is expected to be out for up to eight weeks, so has a slim chance of making the final round on 16 March.

Wales begin their campaign away to France in Paris on 1 February and Faletau’s injury adds to Wales’ back-row headaches, with Lions flanker Dan Lydiate set to miss the start of the tournament after suffering a biceps injury in November.
