GLASGOW WARRIORS will be without Tom Gordon until December due to a calf injury sustained during Saturday’s loss to the Sharks. With Rory Darge already out of action with an ankle injury until the start of the Autumn Test schedule in a best case scenario, the Scotstoun outfit are now without their two frontline opensides during a crucial part of the season.

Meanwhile, Sam Johnson has undergone surgery on a facial injury sustained against the Sharks with his return to play date yet to be revealed, while Allan Dell is now expected to be out until the new year with an ongoing calf injury.

Ally Miller (back) and Huw Jones (back) have both begun their integration back into team training, while Duncan Weir (hamstring) will also look to return to play this weekend.

Meanwhile, Rufus McLean, Sean Kennedy and academy prospect Euan Ferrie will all link up with the squad in Durban later today ahead of Saturday’s game against the Lions in Johannesburg.

A “small number of players landed in Scotland today to begin preparations for Scotland’s upcoming Autumn Nations Series fixtures” but their identity is a secret.

Kyle Steyn and Rufus McLean have both recovered from their respective hamstring injuries and have returned to full training.

Matt Fagerson and Sebastián Cancelliere have both recovered from illness after withdrawing late from Saturday’s game against the Sharks and also return to full training.

Jack Dempsey (rib) will be looking to reintegrate with the squad later this week.

Tom Jordan, Fraser Brown, George Horne and Richie Gray all left the field on Saturday with head injuries and have begun to work through the return to play protocols. Max Williamson also continues to work through the return to play protocols.

    • Dogma, Just read this. Whose ego is out of control here? Like 2 primary school kids having a p*****g contest

    • Not sure which one in the biggest prima donna, but there is simply no room for this in any professional environment….. especially with our limited player pool.

    • My understanding is his partner just gave birth so he is taking some time out for paternity leave.

      This was just bad journalism from Tom English not being clear on the reason why.
