Richie Gray has been ruled out of Scotland’s tour of Canada, the United States and Argentina with a hip problem.
The 28-year-old Toulouse lock will undergo rehabilitation at his club after pulling out of Gregor Townsend’s youthful squad.
He becomes the second Scotland player to withdraw through injury in the space of a week after Alex Dunbar was forced out by a hamstring issue.
Gray will not be replaced for the June trio of fixtures.
