Connacht scum half Kieran Marmion is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The 26 year old requires surgery on an ankle injury and will be unavailable for selection until February.

Marmion was injured during Ireland's November Test against Argentina, but still started Saturday's historic win over the All Blacks.

He will sit out his Province's European Challenge Cup games against Perpignan, Sale and Bordeaux and the Christmas Inter Provincials, but could be fit for the start of the Six Nations.
