The Tullow Tank may have to be downgraded to an 800 gallon one, with the news that Sean O'Brien has lost almost a stone and half after the wound from his shoulder surgery became infected.
O'Brien now looks like he may miss the rest of the season due the delay in the recovery from his injury. The Independent reports that O'Brien originally had keyhole surgery on the injury but a second, more invasive, operation was required in Manchester.
The wound contracted an infection but is now healing. However, between that setback and O'Brien's time off from training, it has seen him lose around 10 kilos of weight.
