Moray and Johnnie called in

Moray Low trained with the Scotland squad this week
Glasgow's Moray Low and Johnnie Beattie were called up to train with his Scotland squad, after preparations for next Sunday's Six Nations opener against Wales were hit by injuries.

Edinburgh flanker Scott Newlands and centre John Houston, and Ulster centre Rob Dewey were also enlisted to supplement the 33-strong party named by Frank Hadden last week.

Injury and illness meant a number of players were able to take only a limited part in this week's activities.

Frank Hadden said: "We had a good three days' training, mainly at Myreside where groundsman Willie Morton has kept their main pitch in excellent condition.

"We also trained at Spartans on the artificial surface and made the most of some great weather conditions."

Hadden is hoping his foreign-based players - who must be returned to their clubs for matches this weekend - arrive back fit.

He said: "There is an inevitable element within professional rugby of managing injuries, but we'll all be pleased if Scotland players having to play club matches outside the country this weekend come through unscathed."
