Injured prop Euan Murray is unlikely to return to full fitness in time to play a role in Scotland’s Six Nations campaign.

Injured prop Euan Murray is unlikely to return to full fitness in time to play a role in Scotland’s Six Nations campaign.

Murray has been sidelined since he suffered an Achilles injury during the November internationals and is still in serious discomfort according to Worcester Warriors Director of Rugby Dean Ryan.  

"I don't expect to have Euan back for at least four weeks," Ryan told the Daily Record.

"He is still being troubled by his Achilles from his last stint with Scotland.

"Euan is still in pain so it's not a short-term problem."

It’s thus improbable that the 33-year-old will feature in the Northern Hemisphere showpiece, which gets underway on February 14.
