Alex Corbisiero and Jamie Roberts are likely to miss the Lions' second Test against Australia.

Prop Corbisiero suffered a calf injury during Saturday's opening Test victory over the Wallabies, while centre Roberts missed the game with hamstring trouble.

Speaking after a 35-0 win over the Melbourne Rebels, head coach Warren Gatland said both players would be assessed ahead of Saturday's contest.

He said: "Alex is struggling a little bit and Jamie is probably in the same boat. Both of them should be fine for the third Test, but at this stage...

"We have a recovery day tomorrow when everyone's off. Then we'll look at seeing how they are on Thursday morning.

"The medics have been doing a fantastic job for us and they might be declared fit, but it's doubtful."
