Gregor Townsend has named four uncapped players in Scotland’s squad for the Six Nations with England-capped wing Ruaridh McConnochie included.
McConnochie played for England at the 2019 Rugby World Cup but hasn’t featured since. Due to World Rugby regulations, this gap between caps means he can switch allegiance and Scotland have called him up for their Six Nations campaign. He is included alongside Leicester Tigers lock Cameron Henderson, Munster fly-half Ben Healy (who is joining Edinburgh on loan), and Glasgow Warriors centre Stafford McDowall.
Bath-bound Finn Russell is included with Jamie Ritchie named as captain.
Scotland open their Six Nations campaign against England on Feb. 4 at Twickenham before hosting Wales a week later. They then travel to France on Feb. 26 before hosting Wales and finishing up against Italy.
