EDINBURGH and Scotland full-back Blair Kinghorn is set to miss the remainder of this season after undergoing surgery on the ankle injury he sustained during last weekend’s Six Nations loss to Wales.

The 22-year-old posted a photo of himself following the operation on social media last night, alongside a message which stated: “Surgery done and dusted. Frustrated my season is over, but now looking forward to supporting the lads⚡️?”

That means Edinburgh will be without one of their most dangerous attacking players for their European Champions Cup quarter-final clash against Munster at Murrayfield on 30th March, and for their push to make the Guinness PRO14 play-offs.
