Date published: August 30 2016

Edinburgh fly-half Jason Tovey is expected to be sidelined for around eight weeks with a wrist injury.

The Welsh playmaker, who joined Edinburgh from the Dragons last season, sustained the injury in training last week, with a scan at Spire Murrayfield Hospital revealing a small fracture, however at this stage it is thought that surgery will not be required.

Tovey will remain in the care of the club’s medical team for ongoing rehabilitation and assessment.
