Scotland back-rower Ross Rennie will have his shoulder injury assessed by a specialist.

Scotland back-rower Ross Rennie could reportedly miss a month of action after dislocating his shoulder in Sunday's defeat to New Zealand.

The 26-year-old will be assessed by a specialist this week, but it is expected that he will be ruled out of his country's remaining autumn Tests.

Scotland team doctor James Robson told BBC Sport: "Ross was seen and treated at the stadium yesterday by Graham Lawson, consultant orthopaedic surgeon.

"He has been reviewed today at Spire Murrayfield Hospital and will now be in the care of shoulder specialist Miss Julie McBirnie for further assessment, which will give us a better indication of his rehabilitation schedule."

Rennie is not expected to return until December.
