Greig Laidlaw ruled out of rest of Six Nations campaign

Ali Price, who came on against France, turned in a sparky performance, markedly increasing the tempo of Scotland's play and bringing feistiness in the loose.

Laidlaw picked up the ankle injury last weekend against France in Paris, forcing him to leave the field during the first half.

Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw has been ruled out for the rest of the Six Nations through injury.

He left the Stade de France on crutches and was sent back to the Kingsholm Stadium on Monday to be assessed by his club medics.

A bruising loss to France on Sunday saw the visitors pick up a number of injuries, with the most serious being that of their captain.

In a statement, Scottish Rugby said that Laidlaw suffered ligament damage and has returned to Gloucester for treatment.

"Laidlaw will see a specialist later in the week to determine the best course of management and estimated time out of the sport".

Scotland host Wales at Murrayfield in their next game, on Saturday 25 February.

The Scots beat Ireland 27-22 in the opening game of the tournament.

Vern Cotter, the Scotland head coach, faces an interesting choice over Laidlaw's replacement.

While there is no timeframe on the scrum-half's recovery, it raises questions over his fitness for the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand in June.
