Grant Gilchrist

Lock and vice captain Grant Gilchrist has been ruled out for the rest of the season (end of May) having been required to undergo further surgery for the broken forearm he sustained in October's European Cup fixture against Lyon.

Grant has, unfortunately, fallen into a percentage of people who can have a delayed healing response.

The decision for revision surgery was taken after consultation with upper limb specialist Mr Doug Campbell at Spire Hospital Leeds.

Following a period of rest, Grant will continue his rehabilitation under the care of the Edinburgh Rugby and Scotland medical teams.

Everyone at Edinburgh wishes Grant well with his recovery.
