Dan Turner
Dan Turner has been called up to the Scotland "A" team for tomorrow night's game against Ireland A at McDiarmid Park in Perth (kick-off 7:30pm).

Turner's call-up is a result of Edinburgh back-row Dave Callam withdrawing due to a shoulder injury.

With Callam departing, Mark Rennie moves from the second row to blindside flanker and Craig Hamilton is promoted from the bench to join up with Glasgow captain Alastair Kellock.

If Turner features during the 80 minutes, he will win his first representative honours for Scotland.
