Finn Russell played against England with serious injury

Scotland star Finn Russell has revealed he played in their Six Nations draw against England with a fractured cheek.

Russell sustained a head injury playing for French club Racing 92 and missed the Scots’ third match against France, reportedly because of concussion.

“The concussion was okay, but when I got it scanned, I realised I couldn’t play against France,” Russell said.

“When I got a knee to the head against Toulouse, I fractured my cheek and that was what kept me out of the France game. The whole time my brain felt fine but I knew there was something else wrong.”
