Leigh Halfpenny looks set to miss Wales' South Africa tour this summer because of a shoulder injury.

The Welsh Rugby Union confirmed that Halfpenny will undergo surgery on Friday on the right shoulder he dislocated during last weekend's 29-18 RBS 6 Nations defeat against England at Twickenham.

The WRU say the Cardiff Blues full-back is expected to be out "for up to four months".
