'Out of action until April' - Glasgow issue update on duo
Scottish URC side Glasgow Warriors have issued a squad update that has implications for two of their front-line players.
With pre-season officially underway, head coach Franco Smith has kicked off preparations with a total of 46 players reporting for duty, a number which excludes the 16 Glasgow players currently away on Scotland Rugby World Cup duty.
The club also issued a medical bulletin on a number of players who are currently sidelined, including Josh McKay and Fraser Brown. Both McKay and Brown are currently rehabilitating injuries, with the latter effectively relieved of any Scotland international duties having been cut by Gregor Townsend back in May.
A statement from the URC side reads: “Josh McKay is continuing his recovery from a foot injury sustained against Zebre Parma back in March, with a targeted return to full action at the end of pre-season.
“Fraser Brown has had surgery on a knee injury sustained while playing for the World XV against the Barbarians, and is expected to be out of action until April.”
There’s also news on Los Pumas fullback Facundo Cordero.
“Logan Trotter and Duncan Munn are both recovering from ankle injuries, the pair looking to return at the end of pre-season. Richie Simpson is currently working through concussion protocols with the club’s medical team following a head injury sustained while playing for Scotland U20. Facundo Cordero, Gregor Brown and Tom Banatvala have all completed their rehabilitation following their respective long-term injuries, with Banatvala having featured for the FOSROC Future XV in the FOSROC Super Series.”

Fly-halves: Richie Simpson, Ross Thompson, Matthew Urwin, Duncan Weir.
