Callam To See Facial Specialist

Scotland No 8 Dave Callam will see a specialist facial surgeon tomorrow after the injury that forced him to retire from Saturday's Bank of Scotland Corporate August Test loss to South Africa. Callam took a blow to the area immediately above his right eye - it was thought to have been an accidental clash of heads - and subsequently suffered blurring to his vision.

Scotland No 8 Dave Callam will see a specialist facial surgeon tomorrow after the injury that forced him to retire from Saturday's Bank of Scotland Corporate August Test loss to South Africa.

Callam took a blow to the area immediately above his right eye - it was thought to have been an accidental clash of heads – and subsequently suffered blurring to his vision.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said today: "He has been seen by an ophthalmologist in Edinburgh today and we will seek a further specialist opinion tomorrow."

Prop Gavin Kerr (recurrence of a toe injury) and flanker Kelly Brown (hand injury) are likely to miss training in the early part of this week. Kerr is now in an immobilising boot. Both will be further assessed tomorrow.

Dr Robson added that a number of other Scotland players had "bumps and bruises" to be expected after a game of Saturday's intensity, but none of their injuries was causing concern.
