Weir’s recovery time confirmed

Date published: January 19 2015

Duncan Weir has successfully undergone surgery and will be out of action for up to four months, missing the Six Nations.

Following an injury sustained in the game against Edinburgh at Scotstoun back in December and a subsequent MRI scan at BMI Ross Hall Hospital, it was advised that Weir required surgery to repair his right biceps.

Glasgow have confirmed the news that was expected earlier this month that Weir will play no part in the upcoming Six Nations, Scotland’s first under Vern Cotter.

Elsewhere, Tyrone Holmes has had surgery to repair an eye socket fracture. It is anticipated that he could be unavailable for selection for up to six weeks.

Josh Strauss is currently undergoing investigation and assessment, following an ankle injury sustained against Montpellier last weekend.
