Danielli and Lawson added to Scotland squad
March 10, 2008
Two players have been added to the Scotland squad for Saturday's final match in the RBS 6 Nations Championship against Italy in Rome.
Hooker Scott Lawson and winger Simon Danielli trained at Murrayfield this afternoon after it was confirmed that both Ross Ford and Rory Lamont have been ruled out of the match at the Stadio Flaminio following the injuries they sustained in the Calcutta Cup victory over England.
Winger Nikki Walker was the only other member of the Scotland squad from the weekend who was unable to train today following an ankle injury but Scotland team doctor James Robson expects him to be able to resume training tomorrow.
Rory Lamont was examined by facial and eye specialists at St John's Hospital, Livingston today following the head knock he sustained at the weekend.
Dr Robson said: "Once the swelling around Rory's eye has settled down he will undergo surgery later in the week."
Meanwhile, Ross Ford is undergoing further investigation following the ankle ligament injury he suffered on Saturday.
