Prop pain for tourists
28 Jun 2009
Lions props Gethin Jenkins and Adam Jones will miss the final Test due to injury.
The pair went off in Saturday’s Test in Pretoria and it has been confirmed Jenkins (cracked cheekbone) and Jones (dislocated shoulder) will play no further part on this tour. Both players underwent surgery after the game.
The brutal clash also took its toll on several other Lions players. Brian O’Driscoll (concussion), Jamie Roberts (wrist) and Tommy Bowe (elbow) are also a concern ahead of the final Test in Johannesburg.
At this stage, no replacements have been called for.
