Gethin Jenkins: Struggling with a calf injury
Gethin Jenkins is set to miss the British and Irish Lions' clash against the Barbarians on Saturday.
The Wales international suffered a calf strain in Toulon's Heineken Cup final victory over Clermont.
And although the injury is unlikely to rule Jenkins, a Lions tourist in 2005 and 2009, out of the tour completely, it does mean that he struggling to be fit to take on the BaaBaas in Hong Kong.
The 32-year-old prop, who captained Wales to victory against England in March, was always going to be hard pressed to play in the match, though, due to his club commitments.
Matt Stevens, Mako Vunipola and Adam Jones have all been training with the Lions from the start of the camp - with rival front-rowers Dan Cole, Cian Healy and Jenkins having all been involved in domestic and European finals.
The Lions follow up their game against the BaaBaas with a clash against the Western Force on Wednesday, June 8.
