Stewart one of seven Warriors in Scotland matchday squad

Grant Stewart could become the latest Glasgow Warrior to make his international debut this weekend, after the hooker was named in the Scotland squad to face France at BT Murrayfield.

The 24-year-old – who only signed his first professional contract with the club in December – has been named amongst the substitutes for Saturday’s match, in what will be his first competitive outing since his try-scoring appearance in May’s Guinness PRO14 Final.

Stewart is one of seven Warriors named in Gregor Townsend’s matchday 23, as the Scotland head coach makes 14 changes to his starting XV.

Tommy Seymour and Peter Horne come into the backline, bringing 91 caps worth of experience between them to proceedings.

In the pack, Scott Cummings will make his first start for Scotland, the second-row having been promoted from the bench following his debut last weekend.

George Turner comes into the starting lineup for the first time since last summer’s meeting with the USA, whilst Ryan Wilson will start at blindside flanker as one of two vice-captains.

George Horne will once again start on the bench, the scrum-half retaining his place in the squad following his cameo in Nice last weekend.
