Tim Swinson appears set to miss the SIx Nations after the Scotland lock was ruled out for at least four months after undergoing surgery on his finger.
Swinson suffered the injury in Scotland’s win over Samoa last weekend.

And, with the Six Nations scheduled to take place from February 3 to March 17, Scotland will in all likelihood have to contest the tournament without the second row.
