SCOTLAND suffered a late withdrawal announced less than one hour before today’s kick off with number eight David Denton succumbing to a groin injury late in the day.

His place in the middle of the third row was taken by Ryan Wilson who was originally slated to start on the bench. Wilson’s place in the Scotland squad has been taken by South African

Josh Strauss who played 76 minutes of Glasgow’s game on Thursday against the Dragons in Newport.

Coach Vern Cotter will be hoping he doesn’t have to call Strauss into the action less than two days after he played almost a full league match.
