Six Nations: Jonathan Sexton will miss Ireland's game against Scotland
Sexton suffered a torn hamstring during the game against England
Ireland, stared down by England in front of their own supporters last weekend, will be without Jonathan Sexton, their influential outside-half, and the lock Mike McCarthy when they face Scotland at Murrayfield a week on Sunday.
Sexton suffered a torn hamstring during the game while McCarthy picked up a knee injury. The wing Simon Zebo, who broke a bone in his foot early in the contest, will also be missing, as will the suspended prop Cian Healy, who is still waiting to find out if his three-week ban for stamping on Dan Cole will prevent him playing provincial rugby for Leinster on Saturday.
