Andrew Balbirnie has been ruled out of the Ireland Wolves match next week against Gloucestershire Seconds.
The Pembroke man has a glut strain which he aggravated playing for Leinster Lightning in the recent Hanley Energy Championship match against NW Warriors at Oak Hill.
“It’s not too serious but we prefer to have him 100% for the match against Scotland A the following week,” said Wolves coach Pete Johnston.
“Jack Tector will now captain the side in Gloucester, while we’ve called up John Anderson into the squad to replace Andrew.”
