CM – Injury puts Finn Russell’s place on the Lions tour in question as Marcus Smith is called up


Warren Gatland has admitted that Finn Russell’s place on the Lions tour may be at risk after tearing a small tear in his Achilles tendon.

Russell is in a race against time to win for the first British & Irish Lions Test against South Africa, with the Englishman Marcus Smith called up yesterday as injury protection.

The Scotland aviator had sustained the injury during the pre-tour camp in Jersey and was not able to take his place among the substitutes for last night’s game against the Sharks.

It goes without saying that the injury requires about a two week hiatus, which would push Russell to start the series against the Springboks in Cape Town on July 24th to play a role.
