Murray returns to Scotland squad

Euan Murray, the 33-year-old Worcester Warriors tight-head prop, returned to the Scotland squad today in preparation for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship match against France at Murrayfield.

Murray, who won the last of his 58 caps against Australia in November, has missed the opening three games of the Championship on account of injury.

Two Edinburgh Rugby players, Sean Kennedy and his half-back partner, Harry Leonard, are also training with the squad this afternoon.
