LIONS INJURY UPDATE:
 All the latest news on British & Irish Lions players with a number of Warren Gatland’s players carrying injuries after the first test.

#1. Dan Biggar

Failing his HIA against the Springboks is the latest knock the Welsh fly-half has taken on the tour.

So far in South Africa, Biggar has battled through the pain, suffering an ankle sprain as well as having a cortisone injection in his ‘stiff and painful’ knee.

The Welsh playmaker last suffered a bad concussion for Northampton In May, but this was only his latest head knock with Biggar suffering three concussions in just a five-month period back in 2020.
