In his WOL interview, Wayne states that Leigh should be OK for Glasgow, tight hamstring, but not pulled. Jake is out till next season, no summer tour. Johnny Mac may be back shortly,possibly by the final if we beat Glasgow.

Good news on Jake I think. He’s a very important player for us and Wales and needs to be fully fit before he makes a comeback. Think this might be Pivac putting some pressure on Gatland not to take him on tour too.

Good to know - 1/2p is such a rock at 15, our defence is always a lot more solid with him there, with his superb positioning... and his goal kicking is a bit helpful, too! He didn't seem in too much trouble when he came off, but the ice pack was waiting...

I also noted in the article that Jonny Mac will be available ..

I thought Leigh was coming off for what looked like a dislocated finger but saw the ice go on his hammy. Leigh can read the opponents attacking structures and his ability to cover tackle and take a high ball gives confidence...but he has comes on in leaps and bounds in attack this year compared to what he was doing (or expected of) at Toulon which was (not now) my concern in signing him ... boy its good to have a great coaching team 

Jake doesn't need a tour to Argentina ... my gut feeling watching the Jaguares in Super rugby it will be brutal up front ... 
 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

He hurt his finger right in front of me in S10. I could have sworn it was dislocated. It certainly didn't look normally aligned before the medics got to him! Dead
We're still still here!

The S4C commentators thought it was dislocated, too, FWIW - brave guy - fingers looked to be taped together on that hand, but it seems he went off for a hamstring twinge in the end.

Assuming there's no fracture (if they're considering him for Glasgow, there won't be), a dislocated finger shouldn't be a problem.

Jake’s shoulder is a bit of a worry. Players are usually back on the field within 3-4 months following a dislocation these days. He must be about 6 months post-op now.
