Londoner Anthony Wall fears he could be out of action for weeks after injuring his shoulder playing for Britain and Ireland against Continental Europe in Paris.

Londoner Anthony Wall fears he could be out of action for weeks after injuring his shoulder playing for Britain and Ireland against Continental Europe in Paris.

After winning his first two games Wall did not play at all today and is doubtful for tomorrow's singles.

“I did it on the 14th yesterday – I felt it snap,” he said. “It’s in the collar bone and I can’t even address the ball.

“I had physio all morning, but it’s still not good. I might not play tomorrow and I’m not sure about the next few weeks.”

Captain Paul McGinley commented: “Anthony’s not good. We thought he would do 18 holes, but he practised this morning and that didn’t work out, so we decided to pull him out of the afternoon.”

McGinley was forced into another change with Simon Dyson feeling weak again.

He spent Wednesday in bed with food poisoning.

“His legs are gone – they are jelly and he is dehydrated,” said the Dubliner.

“He’ll be recovering this afternoon for tomorrow. He’s struggling, but hopefully he will be fit.”
