Mark Bennett has been ruled out of Scotland's remaining Six Nations fixture against Italy next weekend.

Mark replaced injured full-back Stuart Hogg in the 18th minute - but left the field after four minutes with a knee and arm injury.

He will subject to further care and assessment however it is expected that he will take no further part in the current competition.

A number of other players picked up knocks in what was a bruising encounter and a heavy defeat.

Three players are being treated for concussion (Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour and Ryan Wilson) and are now subject to the completion of the HIA protocol.

Finn Russell, Huw Jones (knee) and Richie Gray (hamstring) will also have precautionary scans at Spire Murrayfield Hospital early in the week following musculoskeletal complaints the morning after the match.
