Both skippers could be missing for Lions tour decider

7:15 am on 1 July 2013

Both captains could be missing from this weekend's Lions-Wallabies rugby decider in Sydney's Olympic stadium.

The tourists' skipper Sam Warburton stayed on in Melbourne yesterday for a scan on his injured hamstring and he's in serious doubt for this weekend's series decider against the Wallabies in Sydney.

The Welsh flanker had led his team heroically until the 68th minute of the second test on Saturday night, and it was only after he left the field that Australia scored the winning try.

And the Wallabies could be without their captain James Horwill this weekend, pending the outcome of an appeal by the IRB relating to a stamping charge from the first test, which will be heard today.
