Scotland loose forward Josh Strauss will miss the remainder of the Six Nations championship after sustaining a kidney injury against France last Sunday. 

The 30-year-old will return to the Glasgow Warriors for further care, with a review of the injury scheduled to take place in six weeks' time.

'After completing the match, he was scanned in Paris. Both the scan and the player were reviewed back in Scotland, where the full extent of the injury was confirmed,' read a Scottish Rugby statement.
