Scotland lock forward Richie Gray will undergo a scan tomorrow to determine the extent of the hamstring injury he sustained in the RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Wales.
Team doctor James Robson said this afternoon: “Richie is due to be scanned at Spire Murrayfield hospital tomorrow with a view to a more accurate assessment of the injury he sustained on Saturday.At this stage I can confirm he will play no further part in this year’s championship."
Dr Robson continued: "It would be premature to speculate further at the moment. With the expert assistance of Spire tomorrow we’ll have a better understanding then of the degree of injury to the muscle.
“Richie is on crutches at present and is grateful for the good wishes from supporters.”
A further update on Gray’s injury will be provided following his scan.
Dr Robson added that there were significant soft tissue injuries to a number of other Scotland players which will require further medical assessment though nothing at this juncture which would jeopardise their prospects of involvement in the final RBS 6 Nations Championship game of the season – against France in Paris on Saturday.
