Nick Grigg could make his Six Nations debut against England on Saturday
Nick Grigg's fine form for Glasgow has been rewarded with a call-up to Gregor Townsend's Scotland squad for their clash against England in the Six Nations.

It will be the centre's first appearance in the Championship and a home debut for the 25-year old who made his debut against Fiji last summer.

He starts on the bench as Townsend rewards the starting XV that beat France by naming an unchanged side with 11 Warriors in the 23.

Also named on the bench is Tim Swinson who made his return from injury against the Toyota Cheetahs at Scotstoun on Friday night and was recalled by the national side shortly after.

British & Irish Lions Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour start at full-back and on the wing respectively.

Warriors pair Peter Horne and Huw Jones make up the midfield while Finn Russell starts at fly-half.

Jonny Gray and Ryan Wilson are the Glasgow Warriors representatives in the pack.

Also named on the bench are loose-head Jamie Bhatti and scrum-half Ali Price.
