Wales fullback Leigh Halfpenny will be out for up to four months after dislocating his right shoulder against England.

The 25-year-old is due to undergo surgery on Friday, which means that he will be unable to play for Cardiff Blues again before joining French giants Toulon at the end of the season.

"Wales and Cardiff Blues fullback Leigh Halfpenny, who dislocated his right shoulder against England last Sunday, will undergo surgery [Friday]," the Welsh Rugby Union said in a statement.

"He is expected to be out for up to four months."

Halfpenny injured himself while preventing Luther Burrell from scoring a try during Wales's 29-18 loss to England at Twickenham last weekend, in which he kicked all of his side's points.

He was elected Player of the Tournament in the 2013 Six Nations and Man of the Series in the British and Irish Lions' triumphant tour of Australia later that year.
