Scotland Injury Update

Our Six Nations review will follow tomorrow, but for now here is the SRU update on Six Scotland players who will require further medical assessment from injuries sustained in yesterday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship loss to Ireland at Murrayfield.

Scotland team doctor James Robson reported today that among the forwards lock Richie Gray had a knee strain; his second-row partner, captain Alastair Kellock had hand bruising and a neck strain; and flanker John Barclay had a knee contusion.

In the backs stand-off Ruaridh Jackson had calf bruising; centre Sean Lamont had bruising to his shoulders and upper body; and full-back Chris Paterson had shoulder bruising.

Dr Robson added: “We will be closely monitoring all players over the next 48 hours but at this juncture none of the injuries is giving us any serious cause for concern.
