Scott steps in for injured Dunbar

ST16_squad_1200_dh-700x990 copyMatt Scott – the Gloucester-bound Edinburgh Rugby centre – has been added to the Scotland squad for next month’s summer tour to Japan.

Scott is a direct replacement for injured Glasgow Warriors centre, Alex Dunbar, who was ruled out of the tour with a knee injury he sustained while representing his club in the Guinness PRO12.

Scott and the rest of the Scotland squad will convene at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Monday 6 June for a short camp before their departure for Tokyo the following Saturday (11 June).

The Test matches – live on BBC – will be played on consecutive Saturdays at J1 League football stadia; the first at the Toyota Stadium in Toyota City (18 June), the second at the Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo (25 June), homes of Nagoya Grampus and FC Tokyo respectively.

    How bad is Gavin Lowe’s injury? I saw his on crutches at the Hong Kong Sevens, but have not heard any mention of him since then.
    Yet I note he is one of the 25 pre-selection for the GB Olympics 7s team.
    Any information welcome.
