British and Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton is to undergo a scan today after injuring his hamstring during the 16-15 second Test defeat against Australia in Melbourne.

He limped off 13 minutes from the end of the match as Australia gained a dramatic series-levelling victory to set up a decider in Sydney next Saturday.

The Lions announced that Warburton will remain in Melbourne on Sunday for the scan.

On Monday he will join up with the rest of the squad, who will now decamp to the Queensland surfers' resort of Noosa until Thursday.
