Gray blow for Scotland
Sun, 10 Mar 2013 18:50
Scotland lock Richie Gray will undergo a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the hamstring injury he sustained in Saturday’s Six Nations loss to Wales.
Team doctor James Robson: “Richie is due to be scanned at Spire Murrayfield hospital tomorrow with a view to a more accurate assessment of the injury he sustained on Saturday.
“At this stage I can confirm he will play no further part in this year’s championship. It would be premature to speculate further at the moment. With the expert assistance of Spire tomorrow we’ll have a better understanding then of the degree of injury to the muscle.
“Richie is on crutches at present and is grateful for the good wishes from supporters.”
Robson added that there were significant soft tissue injuries to a number of other Scotland players which will require further medical assessment though nothing at this early juncture which would jeopardise their prospects of involvement in the final Six Nations Championship game of the season – against France in Paris on Saturday.
