Scotland lose prop but get Duhan Van Der Merwe boost
But key winger Duhan van der Merwe has joined up with Gregor Townsend’s men ahead of the BT Murrayfield clash.
Bhatti wrote on Twitter: “Gutted to be out injured so close to the tournament. All the best to everyone playing.”
Wingers van der Merwe and Kyle Rowe have both joined up with the squad after missing the start of the training camp through illness.
Sean Maitland has returned to Saracens after being called up in their absence last week.
The Scottish Rugby Union also announced that Josh Bayliss would continue his recovery from concussion at Bath.
