THE AFTERMATH of Scotland’s loss to Ireland at the weekend at Murrayfield has left a few of the squad battered and bruised, with six Scottish players requiring further medical assessment. Scotland team doctor James Robson reported today that among the forwards lock Richie Gray had a knee strain; his second-row partner, captain Alastair Kellock had hand bruising and a neck strain; and flanker John Barclay had a knee contusion.
In the backs stand-off Ruaridh Jackson had calf bruising; centre Sean Lamont had bruising to his shoulders and upper body; and full-back Chris Paterson had shoulder bruising. Dr Robson added: “We will be closely monitoring all players over the next 48 hours but at this juncture none of the injuries is giving us any serious cause for concern.”Like Rugby World?
