Six Nations over for injured Ryan Wilson

Date published: February 11 2019

Scotland have suffered a setback after it was confirmed that influential back-row Ryan Wilson will play no further part in this year’s Six Nations.

The Glasgow Warriors forward sustained knee ligament damage in the national team’s Round Two defeat to Ireland at Murrayfield.

Wilson will return to the care of his club’s medical team.

In other news, centre Huw Jones and full-back Stuart Hogg suffered knee and shoulder ligament injuries respectively in the same 22-13 loss.

Both players remain part of Scotland’s squad and will be assessed by a specialist during the week to inform their programme of rehabilitation.
