Glasgow Warriors today issued an update on three players who sustained injuries in last Friday’s 31-3 RaboDirect PRO12 win over Cardiff Blues at Firhill.

Centre Graeme Morrison and No.8 Ryan Wilson have been assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon, with knee medial collateral ligament injuries diagnosed in both cases.

Morrison’s is at the lower end of the scale, and the 29-year-old is expected to be unavailable for selection for approximately three weeks.

Wilson, meanwhile, is likely to be missing for around eight weeks.

Back row forward John Barclay, substituted in the Cardiff game after receiving a blow to the head, is recovering well and has resumed running under supervision. The 25-year-old will be subject to the usual IRB return to play protocols.

A club spokesman said: “The Glasgow Warriors medical team are working closely with Graeme, Ryan and John to ensure they receive the best possible support as they recover from their respective injuries.”

The Warriors’ bid to reach the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs continues with a game against Munster in Cork on Saturday 14 April (kick-off 7.15pm, live on BBC ALBA).

O’Connor looking for European response from Ulster

Alan O’Connor is hoping he and his Ulster team-mates can give a better account of themselves on the European stage when Exeter Chiefs come to town on Saturday. Ulster’s European adventure this season got off to a disappointing start as the Guinness PRO12 leaders were downed 28-13 by Bordeaux Bègles on Sunday. But the Ulstermen […]
