Six Nations 2019: Stuart Hogg ruled out as Scotland adds to squad

Stuart Hogg has been ruled out of Scotland’s Six Nations contest against France, while Finn Russell will go through return-to-play protocols after suffering a head injury for Racing 92. 

Full-back Hogg sustained a shoulder injury after a challenge from Peter O’Mahony in the 22-13 loss to Ireland at Murrayfield and will not be considered for selection for the trip to Paris in round three, Scottish Rugby confirmed Monday. 

Head coach Gregor Townsend may also be without Russell. The fly-half was injured Sunday playing against Top14 leaders Toulouse and faces a nervy wait to find out if he can be involved for his country this weekend. 

Scotland has added six players to its training squad for the upcoming match. Fly-half Duncan Weir and Edinburgh trio Magnus Bradbury, Dougie Fife and James Johnstone have been drafted in, along with Glasgow Warriors front-row forwards Zander Fagerson and George Turner.
