Rufus McLean has impressed for Warriors
Glasgow's Rory Darge and Rufus McLean have been tipped for a call up to Scotland's Autumn Test squad.

Both young players have impressed in the opening rounds of the URC campaign and their head coach at Glasgow, Danny Wilson says he would be "amazed" if they didn't feature in Gregor Townsend's squad.

"I would be amazed if they're not in the squad," Wilson told BBC Scotland. "Both guys have been outstanding recently."

"Rory Darge seems to get man of the match every week. The work he gets through, he's a real talent.

"He's one of the best sevens I've seen in my experience, having worked with some quality sevens down in Cardiff and Wales.

"This kid's exceptional and has a massive future ahead of him."

Both players started in Saturday's win over Emirates Lions at Scotstoun. Warriors now face Zebre away and then champions Leinster at Scotstoun before the start of the Autumn Test window.

"We're a threat, we're scoring tries," Wilson said.

"We've definitely improved our balance. Away in Zebre in a massive challenge and a tough place to go.

"We've got a couple of guys to come back like Matt Fagerson and Oli Kebble.

"Once we get those guys out there hopefully we'll be in a position where we can build over the next couple of games and finish this block on a high."
