Hislop facing six months out

Edinburgh Rugby prop Robin Hislop has been ruled out for as long as six months after suffering a training-ground leg break.

The former Langholm loose-head fractured his fibula at Murrayfield last week but the 21-year-old has been given the good news that he will not require surgery.

Hislop will continue his rehabilitation under the care of the club's medical team and specialists at Spire Murrayfield Hospital.

Edinburgh Rugby's lead physiotherapist Stuart Paterson said: "While Robin does not require surgery, the fracture will need considerable time to heal.

"In as much as an individual's legs and indeed their breaks are unique, Robin will have a tailored recovery programme to suit his specific needs in order to allow him to return to playing at the highest level at the appropriate time."
