We take a look at the Autumn squad Scotland will have for the upcoming matches.

Scotland Six Nations Squad 2020

Ahead of the restart of the 2020 Six Nations Gregor Townsend has named his Autumn Scotland squad with several new faces and Finn Russell’s return.

Gregor Townsend said: “We are very much looking forward to coming back together as a coaching and playing group after such an unprecedented and challenging period in our sport and across society in general.

“There was a strong feeling that we were growing as a team during the Six Nations earlier this year, making progress from game-to-game as well as building closer bonds within the squad. Our aim is to keep this momentum going as we take on Georgia and Wales before competing in the Autumn Nations Cup in November.

“The squad we have selected is formed by the majority of the players we worked with in the Six Nations alongside players who have grabbed their opportunity in the past few weeks and have been in form for their respective teams.”

Below is the team he named to face Wales in the final round of the 2020 tournament.

Scotland Team To Face Wales – Saturday 31st October

Stuart Hogg (c), Darcy Graham, Chris Harris, James Lang, Blair Kinghorn, Finn Russell, Ali Price; Rory Sutherland, Fraser Brown, Zander Fagerson, Scott Cummings, Jonny Gray, Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Blade Thomson
