Wilson fears confirmed as back-row ruled out

11th February 2019, 15:33 by Simon Barlow

Scotland have been dealt a Six Nations blow with the news that back-rower Ryan Wilson has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.

Wilson was injured in Scotland's defeat to Ireland on Saturday and the Scottish Rugby Union said on Monday that the forward had suffered knee ligament damage.

The Glasgow Warriors star was forced off at half-time in the 22-13 loss at Murrayfield as Gregor Townsend's side suffered a major setback to their title aspirations.

Centre Huw Jones and full-back Stuart Hogg suffered knee and shoulder ligament injuries respectively in the same game, the SRU added, but both remain part of the squad and will be assessed by a specialist this week.

Scotland next play against France in Paris on Saturday, February 23 and then face Wales at home and England away in their final two Six Nations fixtures.
