Wales are likely to be without skipper Jac Morgan for the upcoming Six Nations tournament due to a knee injury.

Ospreys head coach Toby Booth revealed that Morgan underwent a surgery on his knee and is set to be on the sidelines for months which could rule him out of the upcoming Six Nations tournament.

"The operation was a success and the right thing to do and it needed to be done," said Booth.

"He is a young man who heals quickly but the certainty about being a professional player is you know you are going to spend time injured and that resilience will be tested.

"We will look forward to getting him better off the pitch so when he comes back, which will be months not weeks, he will hit the ground running."

Morgan and Dewi Lake were named co-captains for the World Cup before the Ospreys flanker was given the role for the uncapped match against the Barbarians in November.

Wales will kick-start their Six Nations campaign with a clash against Scotland on 3rd February with Warren Gatland expected to name the squad in mid January.
