Blues flanker Ellis Jenkins facing lengthy lay-off

Cardiff Blues have confirmed that Wales international flanker Ellis Jenkins is set for a lengthy spell out due to injury.

The 24-year-old sustained an injury to his hamstring during Blues' pre-season clash with Premiership rivals Exeter last month.

Jenkins was assessed by the club's medical team and they decided to send him for surgery after discovering he had a torn hamstring tendon.

The Wales international, who has five caps to his name, has now been ruled out for up to four months as he goes through a rehabilitation program.

Blues confirmed the news on their official website, saying: "He will now begin an extensive rehabilitation program, with an estimated return to action in 12-16 weeks."
