EDINBURGH AND SCOTLAND were today dealt a major blow as winger Tim Visser was ruled out for over three months with a broken leg.

The Capital club’s top try scorer was injured in Friday’s RaboDirect PRO12 win over Treviso at Murrayfield, with an X-ray revealing he had fractured his fibula. A further scan also showed damage to his ankle ligaments, which will require surgery.

As well as missing RaboDirect PRO12 and Heineken Cup matches for Edinburgh, Visser will also play no part in next month’s viagogo Autumn Tests against Japan, South Africa and Australia.

Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons said: “This is really disappointing news for Tim [Visser]. We’re very sorry he’ll miss the Autumn Tests.

“He’s an asset for Edinburgh Rugby and Scotland. We all wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back scoring tries again soon.
