Peter Murchie has been at Scotstoun for six years since joining from London Welsh

Glasgow Warriors centre Peter Murchie will miss the next three or four months of the season after having an operation on his elbow.

The 29-year-old stand-in captain injured it in the Pro12 match against Connacht at Scotstoun two weeks ago.

He was replaced after 15 minutes in the 33-32 win for the defending champions.

Better news for head coach Gregor Townsend is that Rory Hughes, Mike Blair and Pat MacArthur have resumed training after picking up injuries.
