Stuart Hogg has been ruled out of the remainder of British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand because of injury.
The Scotland full-back sustained a facial fracture sustained in the match against the Canterbury Crusaders last weekend when he accidentally collided with Irish scrum-half Conor Murray’s elbow while chasing a kick.
He was favourite to start in the No.15 shirt in the test team to face the All Blacks in the three-match series starting on June 24. He will not be immediately replaced in the squad.
