Warren Gatland names his Lions squad on Wednesday with Sam Warburton expected to be named as his captain.
The Welsh forward however recently picked up a knee injury that rules him out for the next six weeks, meaning he could miss the start of the tour, although his club Cardiff Blues maintain he will be fit in time.
The issue however is what if he isn’t ready or if he suffers a setback in his rehabilitation? When you take a look at his injury record it’s quite worrying.
Sam Warburton is on the treatment table once again.
