Warriors fly-half Jono Lance saw a specialist this week on the back injury which forced him to withdraw from last week’s European Challenge Cup match against Ospreys.
A stress fracture of the back has been diagnosed and will take time to heal. Lance is expected to be sidelined for around 16 weeks.
Everyone at Warriors wishes Jono a full and speedy recovery.
Lance joined Warriors on a permanent deal from Queensland Reds during the summer having impressed in a temporary spell at the Club late last year.
