Cardiff Blues flanker Sam Warburton will miss six weeks of action due to an ankle injury which he sustained against the Ospreys on Saturday.

The 27-year-old back-row has been ruled out of his side's Christmas PRO12 period, which includes their Challenge Cup matches against Montpellier.

Warburton left the field during the first-half at the Liberty Stadium, with the Blues flanker now looking at January games to prove his fitness to Wales head coach Warren Gatland ahead of their 2016 Six Nations Championship opener against Ireland in Dublin on February 7.
