Bath back-row forward Josh Bayliss is primed for his Scotland debut this afternoon, having previously been called up for the 2021 Guinness Six Nations Championship and the recent summer tour which was ultimately cancelled. Bayliss made his Bath debut in 2016 and has featured five times for them this season. He qualifies for Scotland through his grandmother, who was born in Aberdeen.
Bayliss made his debut against Australia in the 2021 Autumn Nations Series replacing Hamish Watson in the final 10 minutes of the match.
