Scotland are sweating over the fitness of a whopping eleven players after their demoralising 28-0 Test loss to South Africa at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Wing Tommy Seymour and prop Moray Low will require further medical assessment this week, Scotland revealed in a medical statement.

“Seymour (calf) and Low (shoulder) are the most significant casualties from the match, while Edinburgh duo Greig Laidlaw and Nick De Luca will also be subject to further treatment,” it read.

“Laidlaw, the captain and scrum-half required stitches in a cut to his knee and also sustained a dead leg, while De Luca had a shoulder injury.

“Another seven members of the squad were also treated by Dr James Robson and physiotherapists Paul McGinley and Stephen Mutch for lesser ailments.”

Dr Robson added: “Considering the physicality of yesterday's game, our initial examination this lunchtime would suggest that the overall squad are in better physical health than might have been expected.”
