Freak injury: Euan Murray

Worcester Warriors and Scotland prop Euan Murray faces missing the rest of the season after sustaining an odd injury to his thumb.

The tighthead is thought to have incurred significant damage to the digit while chopping wood at the Warriors' team-building barbeque, reports Worcester News.

The 33-year-old British and Irish Lion's absence is a massive loss for the struggling Premiership side, who remain rooted to the bottom of the league table without a single victory.

Indeed, the powerhouse is the winless Warriors' marquee signing; exempt from the domestic salary cap.

Murray has been sidelined since picking up an Achilles tendon injury during Scotland's November Tests, ruling him out of the Six Nations.

Director of Rugby Dean Ryan is left with John Andress and Rob O'Donnell to fill the Scot's boots.
