Graham facing long lay off
February 21, 2000

Scotland prop George Graham dislocated his shoulder in scoring Scotland's second try on Saturday - and is unlikely to feature again in this year's championship.
The 34-year-old therefore feels that his test career, which has brought him 13 caps over the last three years may now be over.
"The doctors, who are always cagey, say three months, but I hope four to six weeks," said Graham. " Whatever happens I will not play in the Six Nations again this season and realistically I have probably played my last game."
He could well be replaced by a fit again David Hilton in the squad to face France in two weeks, although Bristol's Zimbabwe born Paul Johnstone had a fine game for the 'A' side at Donnybrook on Friday evening.
Other Scottish injuries from Saturday's defeat include Gordon Bulloch and Bryan Redpath. While the hooker is likely to miss the next two games, against France on Saturday week and Wales on March 18, because of his shoulder injury Redpath hopes to be available to face the French though the full extent of his ankle problem is not yet known.
