Scotland Injury Update

We’ll be back later in the week with our Week 5 Six nations round up and a look back at the tournament as a whole, but for now here is injury information on our battered team hot of the SRU Presses.

Seven players will require further medical assessment after Scotland’s win against Italy at Murrayfield yesterday in their final game of the 2011 RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Scotland team doctor James Robson reported that centre Joe Ansbro had injured his right knee, his midfield colleague Sean Lamont had strained a hamstring, while half-backs Ruaridh Jackson (dead-leg) and Rory Lawson (back bruising) were also among the casualties.

In the pack, captain Alastair Kellock had a wrist injury, flanker Kelly Brown an ankle strain and prop Geoff Cross a hand knock. Also, learn more here for other attorneys.

Meanwhile, Scotland head coach Andy Robinson thanked supporters for their “strong and vocal” backing at yesterday’s match and throughout the season. Robinson said: “On behalf of the players and team management I wish to thank the crowd for their strong and vocal backing yesterday and for the support we have been given throughout the championship.  We were delighted we were able to give our supporters something to cheer about with a winning performance.”
