Scotland prop could miss Six Nations opener after ‘debatable red’ card

Rory Sutherland’s return to rugby lasted all of six minutes.

The Worcester forward found himself on the wrong end of the ref’s whistle for a head clash early on in his side’s 22-19 loss to Bath. 

Sutherland could now miss Scotland’s Six Nations opener against England at Murrayfield.

Worcester head coach Jonathan Thomas said: “By the letter of the law it’s a red card and you can’t argue with it, but I think there is an issue with the law… Something is wrong with the game if we are going to have a sending-off for that.

“I am bitterly disappointed to go down to 14 players and lose. I thought we were the better team with 14, and we had to be tactically smart.

“The players showed huge, huge character and I am gutted for them because we created opportunities. It was an unbelievable effort.”
