INJURY UPDATE: Sunwolves trio, including captain Willie Britz, will return to Japan from their intense New Zealand tour.

 

Britz, who has been nursing an injury, has been absent from the Sunwolves starting XV since April 7.

The injury saw the captain missed two home defeats to the Waratahs and Blues, respectively.

Fullback Kotaro  Matsushima will be returned home due to a concussion he sustained during the 10-24 defeat to the Blues.

While Ryoto Nakamura is the only casualty from their recent defeat to Crusaders in New Zealand.

The trio's return to Japan just adds a new headache for Sunwolves head coach Jamie Joseph.

The Sunwolves next fixture is against the inform Hurricanes in Wellington in Round 11.
