Taulupe Faletau: Bath confirm Wales number eight needs more surgery

Taulupe Faletau has played 72 times for Wales and for Tests for British and Irish Lions

Bath have confirmed Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau needs more surgery on his broken arm.

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

The British and Irish Lion, 28, made a return in Bath’s 18-16 Champions Cup win over Wasps in January, but suffered another break.

Now Bath say Faletau will require further surgery although no return date has been set by his club.

“We’re gutted for Taulupe, but this is the best course of action for him moving forwards as a player,” said Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder.

“We will know more in terms of timeframes following the surgery, but we’re looking forward to welcoming him back into the squad.”
