Glasgow Warriors lock Richie Gray took no part in Scotland’s final training session today before their RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Wales at Murrayfield tomorrow (kick-off 5pm). Gray, 21, sat out the practice after suffering from a stomach bug overnight.
Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “As a precaution we have drafted Edinburgh lock Scott MacLeod to our squad and he trained with us today, having also worked with us earlier in the week.
“Scott gave a quality performance in Scotland A’s victory over Ireland A at Netherdale last month and we would have no qualms if he is required tomorrow.”
