British and Irish Lions prop Gethin Jenkins is in doubt for Saturday's tour opener against the Barbarians in Hong Kong due to a calf injury.

Jenkins, who has a history of calf injuries, suffered the injury after coming on as a replacement for Toulon in their win over Clermont in the European Cup Final.

"I don't think it's a serious I may be back Saturday or maybe Wednesday," Jenkins told WalesOnline.

"It's a bit of a niggle really, probably because I came off the bench in the Final from doing nothing to defending for 20 minutes."

Lions coach Warren Gatland said: "The physios are hopeful he will be up and running within three or four days.

"But other than that we have been pretty lucky with the guys who have played in finals and we haven't picked up an injuries in training either."

Cian Healy and Mako Vunipola are the two options to start at loosehead on Saturday should Jenkins be unavailable.
