Six Nations 2017: Scotland’s Greig Laidlaw ruled out for rest of campaign

  • Greig Laidlaw has been ruled out for the rest of the Six Nations
  • The Scotland captain suffered an ankle injury against France
  • The Gloucester scrum-half left the Stade de France on crutches
Greig Laidlaw will miss the rest of the Six Nations with an ankle injury he picked up while playing for Scotland against France.

The Scotland captain came off before the half-hour mark in Paris and was later seen with crutches and wearing a protective “moon boot”.

“The extent of the damage is such that he will take no further part in the current championship,” read a statement from Scottish Rugby.


“Laidlaw will see a specialist later in the week to determine the best course of management and estimated time out of the sport.”

Gloucester will now be working with Greig to ensure a speedy return to fitness ahead of a big finish to the domestic season.
