Head Coach Gregor Townsend has today announced four additional players called up to the Scotland squad, who met up in camp yesterday.
The principle casualty from a heavy weekend of Scottish action in the Heineken Champions Cup for Edinburgh was Hamish Watson who suffered a hand injury during a tackle and has dropped out of the squad for now.
Watson’s loss means the chances of John Hardie and/or Jamie Ritchie starting increase massively, especially with the continued absence of John Barclay.
Johnny Gray and Ryan Wilson were big name substitutions for Glasgow in their loss to Saracens, while Sam Johnson suffered a concussion, but all three remain with the squad and so their chances of recovery must be better.
The replacements called up are Alex Dunbar and back rows Luke Crosbie, Matt Smith and Rob Harley.
