Scotland duo David Denton and Sean Maitland will miss the start of the Six Nations championship through injury.

Denton had a scan which confirmed he had sustained a tear to his calf in Edinburgh Rugby’s Challenge Cup win over Bordeaux on Friday night.

Glasgow Warriors wing/full-back Maitland also had a specialist scan which showed damage to his shoulder.

Both players have returned to their clubs for treatment and will be considered for selection later in the campaign.

Scotland kick off this season’s competition with a trip to Paris to face France on Saturday week.
