Sam Skinner will miss the Rugby World Cup following a hamstring injury, with Scotland calling up Tim Swinson to train with the squad.
Skinner sustained the issue in Saturday’s 17-14 win over France at Murrayfield as Scotland continued their preparations before heading to Japan.
Scans later the same day revealed an injury and projected recovery time meaning he would be unable “to play a meaningful part” at the World Cup, Scotland revealed on Tuesday.
Glasgow Warriors forward Swinson, who has 38 caps for his country, will provide training cover in Skinner’s absence.
Tommy Seymour and Blade Thomson were also forced off in Scotland’s victory at the weekend.
