Saracens forward Jackson Wray is to see a consultant this week after fracturing his skull in their Premiership win at Northampton on Sunday.
The versatile back-rower, 31, played the second half at Franklin’s Gardens with the injury.
“Thanks for all the messages guys, injuries are unfortunately part of the game we love. Look forward to being back on the field with the boys!,” he wrote on Twitter.
In an injury update posted on the club’s official website, Saracens said that Wray would be “seeing a consultant this week after suffering a fracture in his skull last weekend against Northampton Saints.”

LIST: 5 Games Where Rugby Stars Played Through a Serious Injury
PLAYERS WHO PLAYED THROUGH SERIOUS INJURY:
1. Richie McCaw – BROKEN FOOT
The two-time Rugby World Cup-winning All Blacks captain, and most capped international of all time, had to hide a broken foot from the media, his teammates and even his coach, then Graham Henry, during the 2011 RWC.
He would not only play the rest of the semi-final, but also the final a week later and in doing so eked out a famous victory against France to end a 24-year wait for World Cup glory in New Zealand.
