Locks To Travel To Argentina

Locks Al Kellock and Craig Hamilton are to travel with Scotland to Argentina this weekend ahead of the two Test matches next month. Kellock, 26, the Glasgow Warriors captain, has recovered from knee surgery and played a full part in all training this week and is keen to add to his last Scotland outing, last year's Calcutta Cup match at Twickenham, which was his 14th cap.

Locks Al Kellock and Craig Hamilton are to travel with Scotland to Argentina this weekend ahead of the two Test matches next month.

Kellock, 26, the Glasgow Warriors captain, has recovered from knee surgery and played a full part in all training this week and is keen to add to his last Scotland outing, last year's Calcutta Cup match at Twickenham, which was his 14th cap.

Hamilton, 28, last capped against New Zealand three years ago, will fly out with the squad to Argentina on Saturday but whether that's his final destination is still to be decided.

Scotland head coach Frank Hadden said: "I'm delighted with the contribution Al and Craig have made this week. Both are fit and raring to go.

Al is now added to the tour squad. Craig will travel with us and, depending on the results from France at the weekend, will either stay with us in the national squad or join up with the Scotland A squad in Canada for the Barclays Churchill Cup.

Craig has been the consummate professional in this situation and I thank him for his first-class response."

Scotland play Argentina on Saturday 7 June in Rosario and Saturday 14 June in Buenos Aires.
