Scott setback for Edinburgh

Date published: April 13 2015

Edinburgh have suffered a setback after Matt Scott was ruled out for the rest of the season due to an injury he suffered during the Six Nations.

The international centre hurt his left shoulder in Scotland's final game of 2015's Championship, against Ireland, and underwent surgery last week.

"It had been hoped that Matt would be able to manage his injury conservatively but following consultation with specialists at Spire Murrayfield the decision to perform an investigative arthroscopy was taken. This resulted in him requiring a further surgical procedure to help deal with his shoulder complaints," read a statement from Edinburgh.

"Matt will now continue with his rehabilitation programme with the Edinburgh Rugby medical team and will be unavailable to play for Edinburgh for the rest of the season.

"Everyone at the club wishes Matt all the best with his recovery."
