Injury blow for Scotland in Six Nations

11:07 am on 11 February 2010

Scotland has suffered a big setback before its Six Nations rugby game with Wales in Cardiff on Sunday morning with lock Nathan Hines failing to recover from calf and ankle injuries.

Hines, one of Scotland's leading performers, was injured in Monday morning's loss to France.

His replacement, Jim Hamilton, will win his 24th cap after recovering from a long-term knee problem.
