Injury worries mount for Townsend ahead of World Cup

Gregor Townsend was left counting the cost of his sideโ€™s six-try victory over Georgia after confirming he has five World Cup injury concerns.

The most serious worries centre around flanker Jamie Ritchie who was taken to hospital after the Dark Bluesโ€™ send-off clash at Murrayfield with a deep facial wound.

Lock Ben Toolis and full-back Blair Kinghorn both suffered head knocks that will require concussion checks while Blade Thomson and Jonny Gray โ€“ making his first run out of the warm-up series โ€“ are also nursing hamstring injuries.
