Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw will miss the autumn Tests because of a fractured ankle following the team's Champions Cup win over Ospreys at the weekend.

He'll be unavailable for Scotland's home matches against Samoa, New Zealand and Australia next month, but is expected to make a full recovery before Scotland's Six Nations match against Wales in Cardiff in February.
