Lock Gray has been troubled by a back injury as well as illness while Hidalgo-Clyne, a late call-up for British and Irish Lions scrum-half Greig Laidlaw, has torn his hamstring.

Hidalgo-Clyne’s fellow Edinburgh scrum-half, Sean Kennedy, has been drafted in by Gregor Townsend for the games against Italy, Australia and Fiji.
