Lock Richie Gray has been ruled out of the forthcoming Six Nations fixture against Wales, the BBC reports. The Scotland rugby team is poised to meet against their Welsh counterparts in Cardiff on Saturday and Gray will have to sit it out due to a calf injury.

The 28-year old Toulouse man is set to undergo his rehabilitation in France. Assistant coach Mike Blair said the player was not with them in the autumn or summer tour so the current situation is one that they have handled well in the past. He admits that Gray is a quality addition to any squad but adds that he needs time to fully recover.
