Petrie And Lamont To Miss Newport Match

Two Scotland caps, Jon Petrie and Sean Lamont, are unavailable for Glasgow's Celtic League match against Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade on Saturday.Petrie, Glasgow's captain, is still recovering from the rib bruising that forced his retirement from the field during the second half of the Heineken Cup match against Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens on Friday night last week. Lamont has a calf strain.However, neither player's injury should rule him out of contention for Scotland's opening game in the RBS Six Nations Championship, the Paris match against France on 5 February. Both players are fully expected to be fit for selection for Glasgow's league match against Neath-Swansea Ospreys at Hughenden on 29 January.Lamont's younger brother, Rory, is back in the frame for the Newport match on Saturday. He was not eligible for Glasgow's European matches.Saturday's match at Newport will kick off at 2.30, three hours earlier than originally arranged. The change was made last weekend to avoid a clash with the South-East Asia tsunami disaster fund-raising concert at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on Saturday evening.Two Scotland caps, Jon Petrie and Sean Lamont, are unavailable for Glasgow's Celtic League match against Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade on Saturday.Petrie, Glasgow's captain, is still recovering from the rib bruising that forced his retirement from the field during the second half of the Heineken Cup match against Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens on Friday night last week.
