LOCK SCOTT CUMMINGS and hooker Fraser Brown have been added to Scotland’s squad for their final Guinness Six Nations match of the 2022 tournament in Ireland on Saturday.

The Glasgow pair are joined in the group by uncapped clubmate Murphy Walker, a tighthead prop, while Jordan Edmunds, a rugby sevens specialist, has also been added.

Kiran McDonald, Glen Young and Duhan van der Merwe have returned to their clubs.

Scotland are fourth in the table after two wins and two defeats while Ireland, second behind Grand Slam-chasing France, still have a chance of being crowned champions.

Meanwhile star winger Damian Penaud and lock Romain Taofifenua return after Covid-19 infections as  France prepare for their Six Nations finale against England in Paris this weekend.

The French rugby federation confirmed on Monday that both players would be present in the group having missed last Friday’s 13-9 win over Wales in Cardiff.
