MUSSELBURGH-BORN Huw Jones has this morning (Tuesday) been named in the Scotland squad for the upcoming Six Nations.

Jones, who has won 11 caps for his country since making his debut in summer 2016, is one of 17 Glasgow Warriors named in Gregor Townsend's squad.

East Lothian Courier:

Uncapped Edinburgh Rugby trio Nathan Fowles, Blair Kinghorn and Murray McCallum are all included in the squad, while  John Barclay continues as captain despite the return of Greig Laidlaw. 

There is also a recall for 36-year-old hooker Scott Lawson as cap centurion Ross Ford and last season's first-choice hooker Fraser Brown both miss out through injury.

Head coach Gregor Townsend said of the selections: “It’s a bigger squad than we originally planned – which is largely down to the competition for places – with a number of players having performed well in the Autumn Tests and a few others putting their hands up for selection in recent weeks.

“We welcome Blair Kinghorn into our group for the first time, who has been in excellent form with Edinburgh this season, and also three of our most experienced players in Richie Gray, Greig Laidlaw and Scott Lawson.

“We are looking forward to working with them and the rest of the squad to ensure that we build on the momentum the players generated in 2017.”

Scotland open their Six Nations campaign with a trip to Wales on February 3, and host England and France at BT Murrayfield in this year's Championship.
