Injury Update: Mark Bennett and DTH van der Merwe

Glasgow Warriors centre Mark Bennett has been ruled out of action for the remainder of the season following shoulder surgery.

Bennett picked up the initial injury playing for Scotland in the RBS 6 Nations and it had been hoped that he would not require surgery.
 
However, following an MRI scan at BMI Ross Hall Hospital, it was determined that an operation was required. Mark has now undergone surgery and will begin a period of rehabilitation with the aim of being fit for selection for the Rugby World Cup.
 
It's also been confirmed that winger DTH van der Merwe sustained a hand injury during the Warriors win over Cardiff Blues last Friday.
 
The Canadian international has undergone surgery under the care of orthopaedic consultant Mr Doug Campbell, who specialises in hand/wrist surgery.

DTH will now commence a period of rehab with the medics and will be working towards a possible return before the end of the season.

The club would like to thank match doctor Andrew Murray and the A&E at Western Infirmary in Glasgow for their assistance on Friday night.
