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.
