Revised Scotland squad announced

Head Coach Gregor Townsend today named a revised Scotland squad in preparation for this Saturday’s final NatWest 6 Nations match against Italy at the Stadio Olimpico (17 March, kick-off 12.30pm GMT) - live on ITV.

The Scots travel to Rome seeking their third win of the Championship and with the potential to finish third, depending on the results that follow on ‘Super Saturday’.

Glasgow Warriors quartet Scott Cummings (lock), Matt Fagerson (back-row), Adam Hastings (stand-off) and Richie Vernon (centre) earn their first call-up of 2018, alongside Gloucester centre Matt Scott, who was involved earlier this year.

Vernon earned his most recent of 24 Scotland caps in the Rugby World Cup 2015 quarter-final against Australia, with injury keeping him from adding to that tally.
