Scotland medical bulletin

Back-row forward Johnnie Beattie and wing Sean Lamont (pictured above) will both miss Scotland’s final match in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship against Wales on Saturday due to injury.

Beattie sustained damage to his right ankle and Lamont injured ligaments in his right knee during last night’s match against France at Murrayfield.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said: “Both players were scanned at SPIRE Murrayfield hospital last night and will be subject to further review tomorrow by consultant orthopaedic surgeon Graham Lawson. However, they are unavailable for selection this weekend.

“In addition prop Ryan Grant has a hip/abdomen injury which will require further assessment.  He will undergo MRI imaging at SPIRE Murrayfield tomorrow.”

A further seven Scotland players will be under the care of lead physiotherapist Paul McGinley and his colleague Stephen Mutch over the next 24-48 hours as a result of injuries sustained yesterday though at this stage none is thought to be serious.
