Wilson was replaced at half-time by Rob Harley with the score 12-10 to the visitors.

Centre Huw Jones and full-back Stuart Hogg suffered knee and shoulder ligament injuries respectively in the same game.

However, both remain part of Gregor Townsend’s squad and will be assessed by a specialist this week.

Scotland’s next game is against France at the Stade de France on February 23.

Glasgow team-mate Harley and Newcastle’s Gary Graham are likely to be the leading contenders to replace Wilson in Paris.
