Ashe setback for Glasgow

Glasgow back-row Adam Ashe has had an operation on an underlying hip injury and is set to be unavailable for the remainder of the year.

He’s also recovering from a foot injury sustained against Connacht in last season’s PRO12 semi-final and will commence a rehab programme.

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: “We’re all disappointed for Adam that he’s going to be out for a longer period of time following a hip operation, but we wish him all the best with his recovery.”
