Two added as back-three trio ruled out
Scotland back-three trio Tommy Seymour, Blair Kinghorn and Stuart Hogg have been ruled out of this Saturday’s final Guinness Six Nations Test against England at Twickenham (16 March, kick-off 5pm) – live on ITV.
Seymour and Kinghorn sustained rib and ankle injuries in Saturday’s defeat to Wales, with insufficient recovery time available to feature in the team’s defence of the Calcutta Cup in London.
Hogg injured his shoulder in the national team’s second round match against Ireland and has not been able to recover in time to feature again in the 2019 championship.
Consequently, Head Coach Gregor Townsend has added Glasgow Warriors pair Ruaridh Jackson and uncapped Kyle Steyn to the squad, releasing fellow Warriors Adam Ashe (back-row) and Tim Swinson (second-row) and Edinburgh pair James Johnstone (Centre) and Luke Crosbie (back-row), back to their clubs.
