NEWS | Edinburgh trio called into Scotland's Autumn Test squad

Edinburgh forwards Neil Cochrane, Rory Sutherland and Magnus Bradbury have been called into Scotland’s Autumn Test squad ahead of Saturday’s opener against Samoa at BT Murrayfield. The trio will link-up with the squad at their Oriam training base this morning.

Uncapped hooker, Cochrane, will replace teammate Ross Ford, who is set to miss all three tests after sustaining a pectoral injury. Back-row Bradbury - who made his test debut against Argentina last year - joins the squad after scoring the bonus-point securing try during Saturday night’s victory over Ospreys. 25-year-old Sutherland – who has played three times for Scotland – becomes the fourth Edinburgh prop to join Gregor Townsend’s squad.

Scotland begin their Autumn Test campaign against Samoa this Saturday at BT Murrayfield (kick-off 2.30pm).
