Scotland A Team Update

Head coach, Rob Moffat, has decided to continue the Scotland 'A' team's Barclay's Churchill Cup campaign with a squad of 27 players. Moffat was due to call an additional forward into the _x0018_A' squad, but with Scott Murray not being released by his club (Montauban) for the senior Scotland tour to Argentina, there has been a knock-on effect to the _x0018_A' team.

Head coach, Rob Moffat, has decided to continue the Scotland 'A' team's Barclay's Churchill Cup campaign with a squad of 27 players.

Moffat was due to call an additional forward into the _x0018_A' squad, but with Scott Murray not being released by his club (Montauban) for the senior Scotland tour to Argentina, there has been a knock-on effect to the _x0018_A' team.

Impressed with how his players have adapted to their new surroundings and their desire to be successful on the tour, Moffat has decided to continue with the squad he has.

Only four players have yet to join the squad in Canada. Colin Gregor, Greig Laidlaw, Andrew Turnbull and Jim Thompson will fly out tomorrow morning with assistant coach Stephen Gemmell.

All four players plus Gemmell, who is also the Scotland 7s coach, were involved in the Emirates Airline Edinburgh 7s at Murrayfield at the weekend where they recorded an historic first win over Fiji before progressing to the Plate final. On their arrival, the Scotland A team touring party will be complete.
