Scotland are strong currently so it is a great reward for the lads.

Later this month I believe, sorry don’t have the exact dates to hand.

Not relevant to us, but fantastic to see Mr Laidlaw back in the squad.

I hope Charris has had time to train with the squad. Last time he was dropped in without a parachute & it showed.

Really chuffed for Welsh & Lawson.
