Sykes and Lang called up

Lock Marshall Sykes and centre James Lang have been called into the Scotland squad ahead of Saturday's Guinness Six Nations clash against France at BT Murrayfield (26 February, kick-off 2.15pm)

Sykes has been added to the squad after making his Scotland debut in the Autumn Nations Series last year, coming off the bench against Tonga.

Lang has also met up with the squad and will be looking to add to his six Scotland caps so far.

Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend said: “While it is disappointing to lose players to injury ahead of the France match, this is a great opportunity for the new players to impress and force their way into our match-day squad.

“The attritional nature of the Guinness Six Nations means there are often changes made to the squad throughout the championship and it is a challenge we are much better equipped to deal with given our current squad depth.”

“We wish those that have missed out through injury all the best in their rehabilitation, and we will continue to monitor their progress ahead of the final two games of the championship.”
