Macfadyen Out For Three Months

Donnie Macfadyen, Glasgow's Scotland open-side flanker, will be out of rugby for about three months. An operation on his left knee had to repair damage that was more extensive than had been expected."He"ll miss the Six Nations" Championship," David Jordan, Glasgow's chief executive, reported today. "We probably won't see him again in the Celtic League this season." Glasgow's last scheduled league game is against Leinster at Hughenden in mid-April, though Celtic Cup games follow later that month and in May.Three other Glasgow players, Rory Kerr, Sam Pinder, and Colin Gregor, are having operations this week. Kerr is having a knee operation following injury last month whereas the two others are having groin surgery.Because of the operations on Pinder and Gregor, Graeme Beveridge will be the only scrum half in Glasgow's squad for the Heineken Cup match against Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens on Friday evening. Beveridge and Pinder are the only scrum halves in the squad registered for the European competition, though Gregor was listed to cover that position as well as stand-off.Donnie Macfadyen, Glasgow's Scotland open-side flanker, will be out of rugby for about three months.
