Rugby: Injury fear for Lamont

Have your say

Sean Lamont has emerged as the latest injury concern for Scotland’s rugby squad with start of the Autumn Test series against New Zealand just over three weeks away.

The 68-times capped threequarter, who played in all three summer tour wins over Australia, Fiji and Samoa, is being examined for a possible cheekbone fracture and will definitely miss Glasgow’s Heineken 
European Cup pool tie at home to Ulster on Friday.

There is, however, better news for Scotland coach Andy 

At Edinburgh Tim Visser (knee) and Greig Laidlaw (shoulder) are improving after retiring at half-time against Saracens on Saturday while Glasgow pair Stuart Hogg and Ruaridh Jackson, who failed to see out the weekend tie at Northampton because of 
bruising, are also on the mend.
