Wales first five out for six months

5:54 am on 12 December 2012

Wales' first five Rhys Priestland will miss next year's Six Nations Rugby Championship and he's in doubt for the British and Irish Lions' tour to Australia after rupturing his achilles tendon.

25 year old Priestland suffered the injury during a Heineken Cup at the weekend and had surgery last night.

He's expected to be out of action for at least six months.
