Richie Gray has been ruled out of Scotland’s Six Nations opener with Wales this Saturday, the SRU have announced.
The Toulouse lock has been unable to recover from a calf problem in time for the match.
Scotland’s coaching staff are hopeful he’ll be able to join up with the rest of Gregor Townsend’s squad shortly.
Scottish Rugby said in a tweet: “Richie Gray has been ruled out of Scotland’s NatWest 6 Nations opener v Wales. The 64-times capped Toulouse lock will remain in France this week rehabilitating his calf in the hope of joining the squad in the near future.”
