Gatland waiting on duo's scan results
Wales duo Gareth Anscombe and Tomos Williams will undergo scans on injuries picked up over the weekend, Warren Gatland has revealed.
The Wales head coach watched as 28-year-old fly-half Anscombe limped out of Sunday's 33-19 World Cup warm-up defeat against England at Twickenham with a knee problem, while scrum-half Williams had to be replaced before the game with a shoulder issue.
Anscombe was spotted using crutches on the sidelines and Gatland expects to know more after a scan on his knee at some point on Monday, while Williams' shoulder problem, suffered in training on Friday, will also be assessed.
"We're not sure about Gareth," he said when quizzed about Anscombe. "He's going to get a scan tomorrow [Monday], so we'll see how that turns out.
"I've spoken to the physios. If it's just a strain of the ligament, he'll be out for a few weeks. We'll know more details after the scan."
Justin Tipuric was also substituted with an ankle problem although Gatland expects the 30-year-old flanker to be fine.
