Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde believes that Sam Warburton will bounce back from his recent shoulder injury.

Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde is confident that flanker Sam Warburton will come back "stronger" following his injury-hit Six Nations campaign.

The 24-year-old was ruled out of his side's 16-6 victory over France with a shoulder injury and will play no part in Wales's clash against Italy on February 23.

"It will be interesting to see how Sam reacts on the field," BBC Sport quotes McBryde as saying. "You can look at it as a positive. When you are away from the coalface you are able to weigh up everything and put things in the right boxes.

"I am sure Sam is able to do that. You let somebody else take the responsibility and the burden. You can look at your own game in a bit more detail, think about where you are going wrong and what you need to improve on.

"Then, it is a matter of executing that. I'm sure that Sam will benefit from it and will come back a stronger and a better player."

Warburton has 35 international caps to his name.
