The Warriors fly-half is one of six players who will link up with the squad in Hamilton tomorrow.

Russell was instrumental in Scotland's historic 24-19 win over Australia earlier today, which was the Scots first win over the Wallabies in Sydney.

That result means Scotland will move up to fourth in the World Rugby rankings.

11 Warriors were involved at the Allianz Stadium as Gregor Townsend recorded his second win in as many games in charge of the national side.

Russell will now travel to New Zealand with the Lions preparing to face the Chiefs, who are coached by new Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie.
