Scotland wing Rory Lamont has undergone surgery on the broken leg he suffered during Saturday's RBS Six Nations defeat against France at Murrayfield.

Team doctor James Robson stated that the operation was to stabilise a fracture to Lamont's fibula.

The 29-year-old, who is being treated at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, required lengthy treatment on the pitch after landing awkwardly as he tried to contest a restart.

"Rory is under the care of the orthopaedic surgeons at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary," Robson said.

"He was undergoing surgery this lunchtime to stabilise a fracture to his fibula. We will issue a further bulletin tomorrow following this surgery."

In addition Lamont's brother Sean suffered an abrasion to his right eye, centre Graeme Morrison will undergo further assessment on a knee injury, fly-half Greig Laidlaw suffered suspected concussion and Laidlaw's half-back partner Mike Blair was left nursing a dead leg after a punishing encounter with Les Bleus.

Robson also reported that Glasgow forwards Richie Gray and John Barclay had suffered similar leg injuries to Blair, while lock Jim Hamilton suffered leg bruising.

Six other players from the match-day 22 will be treated by Scotland's medical team for what have been described as "lesser soft tissue injuries".

Scotland's home-based players will assemble at Murrayfield on Wednesday to begin preparations for their penultimate Six Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin on March 10.
