Dylan Hartley waiting for a line out for Northampton Saints

Injury concern: Dylan Hartley

Northampton are sweating over the fitness of Dylan Hartley after the club captain was ruled out for "the next few weeks" due to a shoulder problem.

The 28-year-old hooker missed Thursday's Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final victory at Sale, with the Saints hoping he recovers for their run-in.

"Dylan took a blow on his shoulder, we've had a look at that and there's a few bits and bobs in there and we'll see how he goes in the next few weeks," forwards coach Dorian West told the Northampton Chronicle and Echo on Thursday.

Hartley's absence for the Aviva Premiership run-in would be a huge blow to the Saints, with 22-year-old Mike Haywood set to fill in for Jim Mallinder.
