Date published: May 18 2017

Saracens wing Sean Maitland has had surgery on his right ankle earlier this week and will be ruled out for 12 weeks.

Maitland will miss Scotland’s June tour where Gregor Townsend’s squad face Italy in Singapore (10 June), followed by Australia in Sydney (17 June) and Fiji in Suva (24 June).

The 28-year-old sustained the injury in Saracens’ defeat away to Wasps and will continue his rehab with Saracens going into the 2017/18 season.

Maitland has been impressive in his first season with Saracens since his move from London Irish, scoring 8 tries in 21 games for the Men in Black.
