Date published: March 2 2015

Bath and Wales have suffered a setback after a medical update confirmed that prop Paul James has a fractured thumb and is out for up to six weeks.

He has subsequently been released to Bath for ongoing management.

Meanwhile, Wales captain Sam Warburton suffered a contusion to his knee. He will be monitored by the medical team and will return to training later this week.

Fly-half Dan Biggar joins Warburton in being monitored by the medics after he suffered a contusion to his hip against France in Paris over the weekend.
