Niven And Grant To Miss Rest Of Season

Lewis Niven and Roddy GrantEdinburgh Rugby are expecting to be without forwards Roddy Grant [right] and Lewis Niven [left] for the remainder of the season after the pair underwent surgery to correct wrist and bicep injuries respectively.

Back-row Grant has been managing an ongoing wrist complaint throughout the season, with the decision to repair a torn ligament taken at the end of the January.

Prop Lewis Niven ruptured his bicep representing Edinburgh Accies in the RBS Premiership, also in January.

The pair are now targeting a return in time to begin a full pre-season with the club in the summer.
