Scotland wing Tim Visser faces up to four months on the sidelines with a broken leg.

The Dutchman went off injured during Edinburgh's RaboDirect PRO12 win over Treviso on Friday night and tests have shown serious damage.

Visser wrote on his official Twitter account: "So the bad news is that I broke my Fibula and damaged some ligaments. Operation soon and hopefully be back in three to four months."
