Saracens centre Duncan Taylor has been ruled out of Scotland’s Six Nations clash with England, the Scottish Rugby Union have announced.
The 27-year-old has not featured for his country since last summer’s tour of Japan after sustaining an ankle injury but was hoping to earn a recall in time for Saturday’s Twickenham showdown.
But a hamstring injury sustained during Saracens’ 35-27 victory over Newcastle on Sunday has now cost him his chance of featuring for Vern Cotter’s team as Scotland go in search of a first win over the Auld Enemy in London since 1983.
A statement issued by the SRU said: “Scotland and Saracens centre Duncan Taylor will remain in the care of his club’s medical team for further assessment after he sustained a hamstring injury against Newcastle Falcons in the English Premiership”
The Scots have already lost the services of skipper Greig Laidlaw and back-rowers Josh Strauss and John Hardie to injury so far during the Championships.
