Scotland prop Euan Murray looks likely to miss the RBS 6 Nations because of his Achilles injury.

The Worcester tighthead suffered the injury in the November internationals and has not played since.

He would not have played in Scotland's opener with Ireland next month anyway because Murray does not play on Sundays for religious reasons.

But Worcester boss Dean Ryan confirmed that Murray is unlikely to be match-fit in time to play at all.

Ryan told the Daily Record: "I don't expect to have Euan back for at least four weeks.

"He is still being troubled by his Achilles from his last stint with Scotland. Euan is still in pain so it's not a short-term problem."
