The 30-year-old suffered a blow to his flank in the France vs Scotland RBS 6 Nations match on Sunday 12 February.

After completing the match, he was scanned in Paris. Both the scan, and the player, were reviewed at Spire Murrayfield Hospital back in Scotland, where the full extent of the injury was confirmed.

Strauss will now return to his club Glasgow Warriors for further care and a review of the injury will be scheduled in approximately six weeks’ time. Captain Greg Laidlaw was also ruled out of the remainder of tournament this week with an ankle injury.
