Greig Laidlaw laid low for autumn Tests

Scotland have been hit by the news scrum-half Greig Laidlaw will miss their autumn internationals due to a fractured fibula.

The former Gloucester half-back picked up the injury playing for Clermont in their European Champions Cup victory at Ospreys over the weekend.

Clermont confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Laidlaw suffered a fractured fibula and now Scotland's talisman will miss the internationals against Samoa, New Zealand and Australia next month.

Clermont stated Laidlaw should be back training at the end of the year, which will come as positive news for Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend, who will be looking to call up the scrum-half's services for the 2018 Six Nations.

Meanwhile Glasgow Warriors No.9 Ali Price looks set to continue his partnership with club team-mate Finn Russell in the half-backs for the upcoming Tests at Murrayfield.
