SRU news - Sean Maitland update

Sean Maitland, the 25-year-old Glasgow Warriors wing, has undergone further assessment at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital following the injuries which forced his departure from Scotland’s opening RBS 6 Nations Championship match in Dublin last weekend.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said this afternoon: “Sean was examined by consultant orthopaedic surgeon Graham Lawson. He found that Sean has sustained some damage to the structures of his knee and ankle but, happily, does not require surgery. The expected recovery time for soft tissue damage of this sort is up to eight weeks. Sean is now beginning work on his rehabilitation in the care of the Glasgow Warriors medical team.”
