INJURY UPDATE: It appears that Scotland’s casualty list is more serious than expected.

The team’s latest injury report revealed that Scotland centre Huw Jones is unlikely to play any further part in the 2019 Six Nations.

The Glasgow Warriors midfielder sustained knee ligament damage in the national team’s round two defeat to Ireland at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Saturday, with scan results suggesting the injury recovery time would likely be beyond the reaches of the current campaign.

As such, Jones has returned to the care of his club’s medical team.

Meanwhile, fullback Stuart Hogg damaged shoulder ligaments early in the first-half of the same game and is now under the joint care of the Glasgow Warriors and Scotland medical teams, with his rehabilitation progress and review ongoing.
