Scotland wing Lee Jones has been ruled out of Saturday's wooden spoon decider with Italy with concussion, the Scottish Rugby Union have confirmed.

The 23-year-old Edinburgh back was taken off following a sickening clash of heads with opposite number Andrew Trimble in Scotland's 32-14 loss to Ireland in Dublin last Saturday, which leaves Andy Robinson's side still seeking a first win of the RBS 6 Nations ahead of their trip to Rome.

Jones, who has four caps, has been ruled out and returned home to Selkirk to recuperate, meaning there will be at least one change to Scotland's starting XV for Saturday's match in the Eternal City.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said: "He is doing well. He will have a few days' rest and recovery and will be assessed later in the week.

"He is ruled out of Saturday's match against Italy."
