Scotland lock Richie Gray could yet play again this season, despite a hamstring injury ending his Six Nations Championship prematurely.

Gray was taken off on a stretcher during the 28-18 loss to Wales on Saturday and tests on the injury have suggested he will be out for around eight weeks.

It remains to be seen if that would give Gray long enough to win a place in the British and Irish Lions squad to tour Australia this summer, a squad he was widely expected to make before the injury.

"Richie underwent a scan at Spire Murrayfield Hospital this afternoon which confirmed the presence of a grade two tear of one of his hamstring muscles,"

Scotland doctor James Robson said.

"The normal period of rehabilitation from injuries of this nature is in the region of eight weeks.

"We have kept his club medical team at Sale Sharks fully appraised of Richie's situation and he will now commence his recovery with his club with a view to playing before the end of the season."
