Murray cops three week ban

Scott Murray’s red card against Wales has earned him a three week ban and a time out for when Scotland plays England in the Six Nations.

Murray was suspended until March 6, which means he cannot play for his club, Edinburgh, and will miss the Calcutta Cup game at Murrayfield against England on Feb 25.

Murray kicked out a Welsh player after being late tackled. He said he had not intention to kick the player and that his reaction was one of instinct. It was not enough of a defence and he was given three weeks on the sidelines.

Scotland lost the test 28-18 in Cardiff.
