No surgery: Sean Maitland

Scotland winger Sean Maitland does not require surgery on leg damage that in part forced him off early against Ireland.

The 25-year-old Glasgow Warrior has undergone further assessment at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital.

"Sean was examined by consultant orthopaedic surgeon Graham Lawson," said Scotland team doctor James Robson.

"He found that Sean has sustained some damage to the structures of his knee and ankle but, happily, does not require surgery.

"The expected recovery time for soft tissue damage of this sort is up to eight weeks.

"Sean is now beginning work on his rehabilitation in the care of the Glasgow Warriors medical team."
