Lions injury update: Dan Biggar, Liam Williams, Finn Russell…

#4. Finn Russell (Achilles tear)

The Scottish playmaker has been ruled out of the tourists’ three remaining warm-up matches due to the injury, and Gatland has flown England’s Marcus Smith out to South Africa as a precaution.

“It isn’t a strained achilles, there is a slight little wee tear in it so it is going to keep him out for the next couple of weeks,” said Gatland

“We are going to try and see if we can rehab him. He is going to be in a boot for the next five days and when he comes out of that, he will have some more treatment and he will still continue to get treatment over the next five days and if he is making good progress then we will assess him going forward.

“If he is not there is a possibility that he may go home. It’s a wait-and-see situation.”
