INJURY UPDATE: Warren Gatland gives latest on Stuart Hogg and Jonathan Davies injuries

British & Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland has given updates on Stuart Hogg and Jonathan Davies after both came off before half-time against the Crusaders.

“Stuart Hogg’s got quite a nasty bruise on his eye and cut there, and both he and Jonathan failed [Head Injury Assessments],” said Gatland.


So it’s going to be six days for the return to play for them.

“And they’ll just go through the protocols.

“Stuart had been training well, we were trying to get the ball in his hands.

“For that to happen, he’s caught Conor Murray’s elbow, that was a bit unlucky in that situation.

“And he was looking dangerous, on outside breaks and things.

“So we’ll hope he can be back for the Maori game next week.

“It’s just a question now of how much training we can get under their belt, because they will have to stay away from contact.

“We’ll play that by ear and see how it goes.”
