Connacht's Ultan Dillane set to miss start of this year's Six Nations
Ultan Dillane looks set to miss the start of this year's Six Nations.
Pat Lam has confirmed the lock will face five or six weeks out of action due to the ankle injury he suffered in Connacht's loss to Ulster in the Guinness PRO12.
Dillane made his debut against England in last year's competition and has since made eight Irish appearances.
Ireland open their campaign away to Scotland on February 4th.
