05 Feb Scotland squad update
The Scotland medical team issued the following squad update after yesterday’s 27-22 win over Ireland in the opening round of the RBS 6 Nations.
Stand-off Finn Russell left the pitch in the 45th minute for a precautionary HIA (head injury assessment) and – on review – was fit to return to the field of play.
He continued to progress through the HIA process after the match, with the final assessment to confirm his return to full training taking place tomorrow morning (Monday 6 February).
The eye contusion suffered by Fraser Brown in the first half – that ultimately ended his part in the match in the 25th minute – has been resolved. The hooker will take full part in training this week.
Several other players are showing the signs of a physical test match and will be managed accordingly by the squad’s medical team, however they are not considered an immediate concern for the next test against France in Paris this Sunday (12 February).
