Edinburgh have suffered a major setback with second-row Grant Gilchrist set to undergo surgery after fracturing his forearm against Ospreys.
The 25-year-old is poised for a spell on the sidelines, with the PRO12 side releasing a statement on their website confirming the bad news.
"Edinburgh Rugby is disappointed to report that lock Grant Glichrist sustained a fracture to a long bone in his forearm during a collision in Friday night’s Guinness PRO12 match against Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium," it read.
"Gilchrist has seen a specialist and will undergo surgery today.
"The injury sustained is not to the same bone that required medical attention prior to Rugby World Cup 2015."
