Scotland lose winger Visser for Six Nations

Tim Visser is expected to miss the first three rounds of the Six Nations

Scotland winger Tim Visser looks set to miss the first half of the 2016 Six Nations Championship after pulling a hamstring whilst playing for Harlequins.

Visser had to limp from the field with a hamstring strain in Harlequins draw with Gloucester last weekend and the 28-year-old wing now looks set to miss up to eight weeks of rugby.

“Tim Visser is expected to be out for between six to eight weeks due to a hamstring injury sustained during Big Game 8,” said Harlequins in a statement.

The best case scenario would see Visser only sit out Scotland’s opening Six Nations clash with England on February 6 at Murrayfield and Wales’ visit to Edinburgh a week later.

But Dutch-born Visser, who has played in 23 Tests, could also miss Scotland’s trip to Italy on February 26 if his recovery fails to go smoothly.

His injury comes just a week after head coach Vern Cotter lost the services of Glasgow lock Rob Harley to a thumb injury.
