Dan Lydiate: Rehabilitation ahead of schedule

Dragons flanker Dan Lydiate is set to hand Wales a timely boost as he may be fit for the start of the Six Nations.

That was the word from Dragons coach Darren Edwards who said Lydiate is on course to make a full recovery, after breaking his ankle in September, and set to return to action within a month.

According to reports Lydiate's recovery is significantly ahead of schedule, and he could be considered for selection for Wales Six Nations opener against Ireland on February 2 in Cardiff.

"He is on course for the start of February," Edwards told Walesonline.

"It wouldn't surprise me if Dan has a half of rugby for us and Wales throw him straight in.

"He's that important - we saw how much he was missed during the autumn internationals."
