Six Warriors selected for Guinness Six Nations finale
Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend has named six Glasgow Warriors in the squad for Saturday’s Guinness Six Nations clash against Wales, as the men in blue look to close out the 2020 tournament on a high.
The fixture will form the opening chapter on 2020’s ‘Super Saturday, with the match kicking off at 2.15pm at Parc y Scarlets.
After a two-try showing as captain in Friday night’s win over Georgia, Fraser Brown is named as vice-captain as he retains his place at hooker.
Zander Fagerson once again joins his club-mate in the front-row, after impressing at both the scrum and in the loose against the Georgians.
Scott Cummings makes it a 14th consecutive appearance in a Scotland match-day squad, having never been omitted from a 23 since his debut against France in August 2019.
Ali Price is the sole Glasgow representative behind the scrum, with the scrum-half in line for his 34th cap on Saturday afternoon.
After making his debut against Georgia, Oli Kebble is once again named on the bench as the loose-head prepares for his first appearance in the Guinness Six Nations.
Adam Hastings completes the Warriors contingent, the fly-half selected amongst the replacements by Head Coach Townsend.
