Uncapped trio in Scotland rugby squad

Uncapped trio in Scotland rugby squad

The other two new inclusions were more expected.

Uncapped trio Blade Thomson, Sam Skinner and Sam Johnson have been named in the Scotland squad for November's autumn internationals. Born in New Zealand, his grandfather is from Wishaw.

Australia-born Johnson is eligible for selection on residency grounds and will hope to transfer his good domestic form to the worldwide stage, the centre having been named Glasgow's Player's Player of the Year last season.

"I spoke to him prior to the summer tour".

"He's an excellent player with a big future ahead of him".

Scotland have been boosted by the return of key players for their November internationals, including Jonny Gray, Greig Laidlaw, Finn Russell and Tommy Seymour. We'd have liked to have taken him on tour but Sam didn't think it was the right time.

"They are excellent players and that is first and foremost why we brought them in", said Townsend.

"He wanted to start the season and earn his place and he's done that".

"It's a massive decision to make". "They're playing for a club in England and there are repercussions when they are no longer English qualified as you know".

Nothing is guaranteed for these new inclusions.

Scotland face Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, November 3 before hosting Fiji, South Africa and Argentina on the consecutive Saturdays that follow.

"We believe the rugby they're playing now they can bring to worldwide level and will help us be a better team".

"It also enables us to welcome more players into our training environment and hopefully give a few more players a taste of test rugby".

"So it's great to see him fit and playing number eight for the Hurricanes and playing very well for the Scarlets".

"A lot of those guys put their hands up and are still in the squad". That is an aggressive defence that gets the ball back, and an attack at a pace that works the opposition and puts their fitness under pressure.

Among those missing from the squad through injury are British and Irish Lions full-back Stuart Hogg, Glasgow Warriors team-mate Zander Fagerson and fellow forwards John Barclay, of Edinburgh, and Richie Gray, now of Toulouse.
