Ten Edinburgh men named in Scotland squad

Gregor Townsend has selected 10 Edinburgh Rugby stars in his Scotland squad for the upcoming Guinness Six Nations.

Edinburgh co-captain Jamie Ritchie will once again lead his country, with Townsend selecting the back-row as captain of the squad.

There is a heavy capital influence in the pack, with eight Edinburgh men named amongst the forwards. Props WP Nel and Pierre Schoeman, and hooker Dave Cherry are amongst the front rowers picked, while Grant Gilchrist and Sam Skinner could link up in the second row.

Ritchie is joined in the back-row by Hamish Watson and the in-form Luke Crosbie.

In the backs, fly-half Blair Kinghorn and winger Duhan van der Merwe have been named in the squad. Ben Healy, an incoming signing from Munster for next season, has been selected in a Scotland squad for the first time.

Scotland start their 2023 Six Nations against England at Twickenham (Saturday 4 February 2023, 4.45pm)
