INJURY UPDATE: Scotland will be sweating over the fitness of their star player ahead of their next Six Nations encounter.

Scotland went down 13-22 to Ireland at Murrayfield on Saturday after opening their campaign with a 33-20 home win against Italy,

Scotland still remains in contention for the Six Nations title, though next up for them on February 23 is a trip to face France in Paris, where they last triumphed in 1999.

They could also be without their talismanic fullback Stuart Hogg, who had to be replaced in the 16th minute after suffering a shoulder injury in the lead up to the second Irish try.

“He’s very sore,” said Scotland coach Gregor Townsend.

“He wanted to stay on but his shoulder was not right. We’ll see what will happen over the next couple of days.

“It’s going to be a huge challenge in Paris. We haven’t won there for 20 years, but I believe in our squad.

“I believe that the way we play will put pressure on any team, whether we’re playing at home or away.”
