SCOTLAND centre Huw Jones’ Six Nations campaign appears to be over because of a knee injury sustained during last Saturday’s defeat to Ireland at Murrayfield. The 25-year-old has returned to the care of his club, Glasgow Warriors, following a scan on the injured joint, with a short statement issued by the SRU at lunchtime giving little more detail apart from that the the recovery time will “likely be beyond the reaches of the current campaign”.

Meanwhile, Stuart Hogg, who injured his shoulder in the first half of that same game, is now also under the joint care of Glasgow Warriors and the Scotland medical teams “with his rehabilitation progress and review ongoing”. While a press release on Monday stated that the full-back was to remain with the national squad for the time being, Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend acknowledged yesterday that the 26-year-old is highly unlikely to be involved in Scotland’s next Six Nations match in nine days’ time. No further details have been given on the outcome of the player’s consultation with a specialist yesterday.
