GLASGOW Warriors now expect co-captain Fraser Brown to be out of action for at least the first three months of 2021, meaning he will miss the entire Six Nations. Head coach Danny Wilson suggested earlier this week that the hooker’s neck injury was more serious than first thought, but since then the results of tests have confirmed how long a recovery period will be required.
Scrum-half George Horne faces being sidelined for a similar length of time, meaning he too is set to miss out on the whole of the Championship. And prop Alex Allan is expected to miss the rest of the season.
A statement released on the Warriors website late this afternoon said: “Club co-captain Fraser Brown is expected to be out of action for at least three months as the hooker recovers from a neck injury sustained playing for Scotland in the Autumn Nations Cup match against Ireland.
“George Horne is to undergo surgery on a foot injury in the coming weeks. The Glasgow Warriors and Scotland scrum-half sustained the injury while in Scotland camp and is expected to be sidelined for up to 12 weeks.
“Meanwhile, Alex Allan has successfully undergone surgery at BMI Ross Hall Hospital on an Achilles injury sustained while playing against Dragons in early December. The prop is expected to be unavailable for the remainder of the season.”
