Six Nations: Scotland Squad Update

Six Nations: Scotland Squad Update

Scotland back-three trio Tommy Seymour, Blair Kinghorn and Stuart Hogg have been ruled out of this Saturday’s final Six Nations Test against England at Twickenham.

Seymour and Kinghorn sustained rib and ankle injuries in Saturday’s defeat to Wales, with insufficient recovery time available to feature in the team’s defence of the Calcutta Cup in London.

Hogg injured his shoulder in the national team’s second round match against Ireland and has not been able to recover in time to feature again in the 2019 championship.

Consequently, Head Coach Gregor Townsend has added Glasgow Warriors pair Ruaridh Jackson and uncapped Kyle Steyn to the squad, releasing fellow Warriors Adam Ashe (back-row) and Tim Swinson (second-row) and Edinburgh pair James Johnstone (Centre) and Luke Crosbie (back-row), back to their clubs.
