Scotland lose centre Scott for Six Nations

Matt Scott has been ruled out of the Six Nations

Scotland and Edinburgh Rugby centre Matt Scott has been ruled out of the 2016 Six Nations championship through injury.

A MRI scan at Spire Murrayfield Hospital on Monday confirmed that Scott sustained elbow ligament damage in his club’s Guinness PRO12 loss to Connacht on Friday.

Further examination this Friday (11 March) will confirm if the player requires surgery on the joint, however it is clear at this stage that he will at least miss the remainder of the 2016 RBS 6 Nations, and will return to his club for ongoing care and assessment.
