Sam Warburton to miss Lions test decider

1st July 2013

The British & Irish Lions confirmed today [Monday] that captain Sam Warburton would play no further part in the tour after suffering an injury during the 2nd Test

Warburton remained in Melbourne after the match under the supervision of Lions team doctor Eanna Falvey to undergo a full medical assessment and a scan confirmed a significant tear in his left hamstring.

Warburton, who will remain with the tour party for the 3rd Test in Sydney on Saturday, said: “It is incredibly disappointing to be ruled out of the tour through injury as we head to Sydney for the deciding match. I wish the team all the best and hope I can play some part in the build-up this week. I am confident that the boys can finish the job off and secure the series win.”
