15 Feb Laidlaw to miss rest of RBS 6 Nations
Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations with an ankle injury.
A scan undertaken at his club, Gloucester, confirmed the clinical suspicion that the 58-times capped scrum-half sustained ligament damage midway through the first-half of Sunday’s test match against France.
The extent of the damage is such that he will take no further part in the current championship.
Laidlaw will see a specialist later in the week to determine the best course of management and estimated time out of the sport.
