Marquez suffers big crash in MotoGP Australian GP FP1

Scotland head coach Vern Cotter has been dealt a major blow ahead of the Rugby World Cup after hooker Stuart McInally was ruled out due to injury.

McInally's place in the Scottish 31-man squad has gone to Glasgow Warriors hooker Kevin Bryce, as McInally goes back to club side Edinburgh to recover.

McInally has been struggling with a neck injury but hasn't recovered in time.

Scotland start their pool charge against Japan at Kingsholm next Wednesday.
