… the Scotland A team to play Italy in Venice on the 3rd Feb. The back division looks a bit weaker than the first XV – with the exception of the half-backs – but the pack looks like they’d give the full team a run in an old-fashioned probables vs possibles type match. It is nice to see the likes of Rennie (Bourgoin) and McMillan (Wasps) getting a chance, but I am disappointed prop Nick Lloyd of Saracens hasn’t been given a shout due to his recent form.

Backs: C MacRae (Edinburgh), S Danielli (Ulster), B Cairns (Edinburgh), G Morrison (Glasgow), T Evans (Glasgow), P Godman (Edinburgh), R Lawson (capt) (Gloucester)

Forwards: A Dickinson (Gloucester), D Hall (Glasgow), M Low (Glasgow), M Rennie (Bourgoin), A Kellock (Glasgow), A Strokosch (Gloucester), J Beattie (Glasgow), R Rennie (Edinburgh)

Subs: S Lawson (Sale), C Smith (Edinburgh), C Hamilton (Edinburgh), J Eddie (Glasgow), M McMillan (Wasps), G Ross (Saracens), J Houston (Edinburgh)

  1. Two Rennies eh? And two Lawsons! Still not as bad as the Welsh though!

    What about Gary Law at Viadana, I’m sure he should have a crack in the A team.

    Look forward to hearing how Moray Low and Thom Evans do.
