Denton ruled out of Scotland tour

David Denton has been ruled out of Scotland's summer tour as the back-row forward continues his recovery from a concussion he sustained over a month ago.
The 24-year-old was set to earn his 23rd cap for the senior national team when Scotland take on Argentina on Friday.
However, he will miss the clash in Cordoba as well as the encounter against South Africa eight days later in Port Elizabeth as he has not fully recovered from the head injury he suffered in Edinburgh's defeat to Leinster on the final day of the RaboDirect Pro12 season.
Scotland team doctor James Robson said: "As we've always said we regard the welfare of our players as our principal priority and David has not recovered sufficiently to be considered for the intensity of Test match rugby against Argentina and South Africa."
