Warburton set to miss England game

Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones

Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones have 162 Wales caps between them

Wales captain Sam Warburton is expected to miss Sunday’s game against England at Twickenham as he recovers from a shoulder injury.

Lock Alun Wyn Jones is likely to feature after a heel injury, while loose-head prop Paul James faces a fitness test on his calf and he will also see an eye specialist on Friday.

James missed Ospreys’ Pro12 run-in after having eye surgery in April.

Sunday’s game is a warm-up for Wales’ three-Test tour to New Zealand in June.
