Warburton to see specialist over shoulder injury

Wales captain Sam Warburton will see a specialist in London, to try to determine the severity of the shoulder injury which forced him off at half-time in the Grand Slam-clinching win over France at the weekend. The 23-year-old flanker only played two halves and one full game during the Six Nations.

Warburton has already had two scans on his shoulder, which proved inconclusive. There are fears he could miss the rest of the season, including Cardiff's Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leinster, and Wales' three-Test summer tour to Australia.

Warburton waiting for results on shoulder injury

Wales Captain Sam Warburton is waiting to find out the extent of the shoulder injury he sustained during Saturday’s Six Nations win over France.

Warburton, who has also missed games with thigh and knee injuries this term, may now be a doubt for his sides three-test tour of Australia in June.

I am seeing a specialist, and I will find out more then. The MRI scan did not show any soft issue damage.

They don’t know whether it’s a more complicated underlying factor, which could be a number of things. It could be something to do with nerves which don’t show up on MRI scans.

I don’t really know what to think really. It could be two weeks, it would be two months. I’m really not too sure.

– Sam Warburton, Wales Captain

Initial scans proved inconclusive meaning a more thorough examination will be carried out today.

Warburton, though, has confirmed it is not the same shoulder that he underwent reconstruction surgery on three years ago.
