On Monday, the Johannesburg side revealed that flyhalf Jordan Hendrikse fractured his right ankle during the Lions’ second-round match against Scarlets in the United Rugby Championship.

Hendrikse will be travelling back to South Africa for possible surgery.

The young playmaker is expected to be out of action for at least three months.

After starting their campaign with a 38-26 win over Zebre in Parma in Round One, the Lions were given a reality check when they went down 13-36 to Scarlets in Llanelli in Round Two.

The Lions will face the Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun Stadium in Round Three before they finish their tour with a match against Ulster in Belfast in Round Four.
