Glasgow Warriors flanker Donnie Macfadyen has undergone surgery in a bid to cure a knee problem.
Macfadyen has not played for Glasgow since the match against Edinburgh at Murrayfield last December.
The club now hopes the operation on his left knee - carried out by the same surgeon who repaired team-mate Jon Petrie's dislocated shoulder - will allow him to return to full training with the squad as soon as possible.
Warriors head coach Hugh Campbell said: "Donnie had his knee tidied up by the same surgeon who looked after Jon Petrie's shoulder injury.
"It all went well and we hope he'll be back into full squad training very soon."
The RBS 6 Nations Championship 2015 was not poised to go down as one of the more "vintage" Championships, though there was great anticipation as the action headed into its final day. What transpired was something that nobody could foresee: "The Greatest Day in Rugby's Greatest Championship."
