Ex-Scots called up for International Duty

26th October 2017

Following on from Dino Waldren’s inclusion in the USA Eagles squad for their November Tests versus Germany and Georgia. Two more former London Scottish players have been called up by their countries.

Fellow prop forward, Tomas Francis, now with Aviva Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs, has been called up to the Wales squad for their four matches which includes a game against Australia.

Francis was with the Scots for the 2013-14 season and made 23 appearances and built a reputation for himself as one of the most feared players in his position.

Along with Francis, Hooker George Turner who was loaned down to South West London and is now with Glasgow Warriors, has been named in Gregor Townsend’s first Autumn Scotland squad and one of three Hookers in the 36 man squad.

Turner was loaned by the SRU to London Scottish for over two months in November and December 2016-17 and played 7 games for the Scots.

As well as 15-aside International call ups, Robbie Fergusson is also representing the Scotland side in the 7 man format. Fergusson links up with former Scottish coach John Dalziel who is now in charge of the Scotland 7s set up.
