Wales captain Sam Warburton will undergo shoulder surgery next week and is unlikely to play again before next season after being told his recovery will take "several months".

He suffered a dislocated shoulder in the final minutes of Wales' thrashing of Scotland on Saturday, an almost identical injury to the one suffered by Leigh Halfpenny against England a week earlier.

Warburton has since undergone scans and it was agreed he would be operated on after he met with specialists.

"That's just the way international rugby is nowadays," he said after the match. "They're 10-month seasons and you've got to look after your body. I don't think you'll go more than three years without picking up a decent injury [with] a month or two lay-off at this level."
