Sale Sharks captain James Gaskell has been ruled out for at least two months after sustaining an ankle ligament injury in training.

The 20-year-old has featured in every game this season, starting all but one.

Coach Mike Brewer told the Manchester Evening News: "We're not sure of the nature of the injury but he's going to be out for a minimum of eight weeks."

Gaskell became the youngest ever Premiership captain when he was given the role at the start of the season.
