Centre De Luca could miss all of Scotland’s Six Nations campaign

Andy Newport

SCOTLAND centre Nick De Luca could miss all of the Six Nations after it was confirmed he would be out for two months following surgery to repair a fractured eye socket.

The Edinburgh back, capped 38 times by Scotland, sustained the injury while training with his club last month but club medics had to wait until now before they could confirm their diagnosis.

A statement from the club read: "Edinburgh Rugby confirmed today that Nick De Luca will be unavailable for selection for around two months, following an operation to a fractured eye socket."
