Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend will be a worried man after one of his star players suffered a suspected broken hand during Edinburgh’s Champions Cup match against Montpellier on Friday.
Star openside flank Hamish Watson failed to finish the match which Edinburgh won 19-10 to secure a spot in the quarterfinals.
Watson left the field before the half-hour mark and after the match Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill explained that the injury did not look too good.

“It looks like he may well have broken his hand,” Cockerill told BBC Scotland.
“We don’t know yet, we will have to see.”
The 27-year-old Watson has been in fine form for Scotland over the last two seasons and his potential absence will be a major blow for Townsend’s team during this year’s Six Nations tournament.
