Six Nations: four new players called up for Scotland before facing Italy

Oyonnax prop Rory Sutherland made his appearance in the Scotland squad on Monday, with three other players, before the trip to Italy on Saturday during the fourth day of the Six Nations Tournament.

The 31-year-old pillar (31 caps) had not been called up with the Chardon XV since the start of the Tournament due to poor playing time on the Oyonnax side in the Top 14. In addition to Sutherland, the pillar from Edinburgh Javan Sebastian and his hooker teammate Marshall Sykes, as well as Glasgow scrum-half Jamie Dobie are also called up.

The second row Alex Craig and the pillar Willem Petrus (“WP”) Nel are leaving Gregor Townsend's selection, as is the center Sione Tuipulotu, injured in the knee during the victory against England at the end of February and absent for three months. Scotland is in second place in the Tournament after three matches, thanks to two victories, against the XV de la Rose and Wales, interrupted by a defeat against France. She will face Italy, dead last with two defeats and a draw, in Rome on Saturday at 3:15 p.m.
