Robshaw blow for Quins.

ENGLAND captain Chris Robshaw has been ruled out of Harlequins' Champions Cup tie against Leinster on Saturday, and will see a specialist to examine his shoulder injury.

The 28-year-old flanker sustained the blow against the same opposition on Sunday, when he helped Quins to a 24-18 victory at the Stoop.

Harlequins are waiting to hear how long Robshaw (right) will be missing but it completes a double blow, with fly-half Nick Evans also out for the trip to Dublin.

A statement said: "Harlequins today confirmed that both Chris Robshaw and Nick Evans will be unavailable for Saturday's Champions Cup match against Leinster, due to injuries sustained in the match at the Stoop.

"Evans is expected to return next week against Newcastle Falcons. Robshaw will have further assessments with a specialist on a shoulder injury. An update will be given towards the end of the week." ."

Wales prop Aaron Jarvis faces six weeks out after tearing a chest muscle. Jarvis suffered the injury during a substitute appearance for the Dragons in the 12-6 win over South Africa.
