Wales and Cardiff Blues flanker Sam Warburton is expected to be sidelined for six weeks after suffering a knee injury.

Warburton suffered a medial ligament strain during Blues' Guinness PRO12 clash against Ulster in Belfast last week.

Blues head coach Danny Wilson confirmed Warburton's absence, but does not envisage any problems with regard to his availability for this summer's British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand.
