Paul O'Connell has emerged as an injury doubt for the remainder of the British & Irish Lions' tour of Australia.

The Irish lock is reported to be struggling with an arm problem following Saturday's 23-21 victory over the Wallabies in the first Test in Brisbane.

Reports have suggested that the 32-year-old could be forced to go back home to recover.

Meanwhile, Ulster prop Tom Court has been called up to the squad as injury cover for Alex Corbisiero.
