Lamont out of autumn series

Scotland’s Sean Lamont will miss the remainder of the autumn internationals after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday’s defeat to New Zealand.

The Northampton wing pulled up when chasing back to try and prevent Richard Kahui from scoring the All Blacks’ third try and the 27-year-old has now been ruled out of the games against South Africa and Canada.

"A scan has shown damage to Sean’s hamstring – enough to rule him out of the remaining Tests," said Scotland and Lions doctor James Robson.

Lamont’s brother, Rory, has been added to the squad in his place having recovered from a shoulder injury and could now feature against the Boks at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Double Lions tourist Simon Taylor will have a fitness test later in the week as he attempts to overcome a calf strain, while wing Thom Evans and locks James Hamilton and Nathan Hines are expected to be fit to face the world champions despite missing Monday’s training session.
