Scotland's Rennie sees shoulder specialist



Scotland flanker Ross Rennie has been treated by a surgeon after suffering a dislocated shoulder during the 51-22 defeat by world champions New Zealand at Murrayfield on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Edinburgh back-row now seems set to miss this weekend's clash at home to South Africa.

"Ross was seen and treated at the stadium yesterday (Sunday) by Graham Lawson, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, said Scotland team doctor James Robson in a statement issued Monday by the Scottish Rugby Union.

"He has been reviewed today (Monday) at Spire Murrayfield Hospital and will now be in the care of shoulder specialist Miss Julie McBirnie for further assessment, which will give us a better indication of his rehabilitation schedule."

Rennie, winning his 20th cap, was injured during the build-up to the first of six All Blacks tries, scored by Israel Dagg, and was replaced by Edinburgh teammate David Denton in the 23rd minute.

Among the Scotland players carrying injuries heading into Tuesday's training session is wing Tim Visser, who scored two tries against the All Blacks, with the Dutch-born flyer suffering from a "flank" problem.

Meanwhile props Geoff Cross (ribs) and Ryan Grant (back), replacement hooker Scott Lawson (shoulder), lock Jim Hamilton (dead leg), centres Matt Scott (shoulder) and Nick de Luca (calf) also sustained knocks against the All Blacks.

After playing South Africa, who won 16-12 against Ireland in Dublin last weekend, Scotland conclude their European autumn series with a test against Tonga in Aberdeen on November 24.
