Called up to the Scotland squad for their Summer tour to Canada, USA and Argentina next month.

Presumably, this is because some key players are being given a rest but good luck to Lang.

Full article:

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has named six uncapped players in a 33-man squad for their tour to Canada, USA and Argentina next month.

The potential debutants are split between the touring forwards and backs, with Edinburgh duo Lewis Carmichael and Jamie Ritchie joined by Glasgow Warriors back-row Matt Fagerson in the pack.

Glasgow Warriors half-backs George Horne and Adam Hastings earn the opportunity to continue a stellar debut season on the tour, alongside former Scotland U18 and Harlequins midfielder, James Lang, who also gets the call.

“There are twin goals for this tour – the first is to build on the work we’ve done so far this season and finish with improved performances. We also have the Rugby World Cup in our thoughts, as this will be our last tour before we leave for Japan next year,” said Townsend.

“Touring and staying together for four weeks and experiencing different environments will be very informative – seeing how players get on with each other, how much they improve and how they rise to each challenge we face on tour.”

The squad, which has an average age of 25 and just two players aged 30 or above, also features notable absentees with Townsend giving a number of squad regulars an extended break, one year out from Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

With John Barclay rested, Townsend has handed the tour captaincy to hooker Stuart McInally for the first time, a just reward for consistently-impressive performances for club and country.

Congratulations James. I didn't know he was scotland qualified. Thought he used to play in wales, so assumed it was a choice between them and England
