Gray has been partnered by Glasgow team-mate Scott Cummings in the second-row for both matches so far, but head coach Gregor Townsend could call on experienced Edinburgh duo Grant Gilchrist and Ben Toolis to replace the 55-cap Warriors man, while Alex Craig is another option.

Scotland's remaining fixtures see them travel to Italy on February 22 before a home clash with France on March 8. Their tournament finishes with a trip to Wales on March 14.
