SCOTLAND WILL BE without captain Greig Laidlaw for the remainder of the Six Nations due to an ankle injury.

The Gloucester scrum-half, capped 58 times, had to go off during the first half of Scotland’s 22-16 loss to France in Paris on Sunday, and a subsequent scan revealed he’d sustained ligament damage.

“Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations with an ankle injury,” the SRU said in a statement.

“Laidlaw will see a specialist later in the week to determine the best course of management and estimated time out of the sport.”
