Glasgow Warriors centre Mark Bennett has played his last game for the club after being forced to undergo knee surgery a month on from his Twickenham nightmare.
The Scotland midfielder had only been on the pitch for two minutes during the Dark Blues’ 61-21 RBS 6 Nations thrashing by England when he collapsed to the turf after damaging his anterior cruciate ligament.
The Scotstoun side have now confirmed the 24-year-old has had an ACL reconstruction performed at the BMI Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
Bennett, who will join Edinburgh next season, is expected to be out of action for between nine to 12 months.
Meanwhile, backrower Josh Strauss, who sustained an injury to his kidney playing for Scotland against France in February, has been reviewed by his consultant and is healing well.
The 30-year-old, who is due to join Sale this summer, requires a further six weeks of non-contact work before he can return to full training and is unlikely to play again for the Scotstoun outfit.
Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend: “We’re disappointed that Mark’s time at the club has come to an end in this way, and it also looks like Josh may not play for us again as he continues his graduated return to training.
“We wish both players all the best with their rehab and look forward to having them as part of our wider group for the remainder of the season.”
