Alex Cuthbert injury concern for Cardiff Blues and Wales

Alex Cuthbert receives treatment

Wing Alex Cuthbert is a Wales injury worry ahead of the Autumn Tests after suffering an ankle injury in Cardiff Blues' win over Toulon.

Cuthbert picked up the injury after 18 minutes of the 19-15 Heineken Cup win.

The Lions wing continued until half-time but did not reappear for the second half and was seen leaving the Arms Park on crutches.

"His ankle's a bit sore so we've just got to assess him," Blues boss Phil Davies said.

Davies played down the injury and is confident 23-year-old Cuthbert would be available for Wales' November tests.

"[There's] no major damage apparently, just more of a knock than anything which he couldn't shake off so we brought him off," Davies added.

"We'll see how he is. He'll be fine for Wales I'm sure."

Wales head coach Warren Gatland announces his squad for the November internationals on Tuesday.

South Africa are Wales' first opponents at the Millennium Stadium on 9 November before Gatland's side face Argentina, Tonga and Australia.
