Still No Finn As Scotland Name Squad For The Calcutta Cup

Still No Finn As Scotland Name Squad For The Calcutta Cup

A 37-man Scotland squad for this Saturday's Six Nations round two Test against England at BT Murrayfield was today confirmed.

Finn Russell is still missing from the squad after the fly-half, 27, had left the squad prior to the 19-12 defeat by Ireland for "breaching team protocol" during a drinking session.


Russell played in Racing 92's win over Castres the weekend prior to the opening Six Nations fixtures. Adam Hastings started at 10 for Scotland in Dublin and successfully kicked four of his five penalties.

Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup in dramatic fashion last year with a 38-38 draw at Twickenham Stadium.


The named will have the chance to compete for the chance to repeat those heroics and that of the 2018 victory at Murrayfield Stadium, which ended a 10-year wait for the silverware.

Duncan Weir remains in the squad having joined last week in place of Finn Russell, while Darcy Graham (knee) is not available through injury.
