Edinburgh’s Ben Toolis will miss the start of his club’s European Challenge Cup campaign after undergoing elbow surgery.

The Brisbane-born 23-year-old lock, who has one cap for Scotland and was drafted in as injury cover to Vern Cotter’s World Cup training squad over the summer, sustained the injury in the latter stages of the win in Treviso two weeks ago.

An Edinburgh spokesperson said: “Ben underwent surgery on his left elbow [on Thursday]. He has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his recovery under the care of the Edinburgh Rugby medical team.”
