SCOTLAND have called up uncapped duo Grayson Hart and Mark Bennett ahead of next weekend’s Test against the USA after losing Chris Cusiter and Alex Dunbar to injury.

Scrum-half Cusiter and centre Dunbar both picked up knocks during Glasgow Warriors’ RaboDirect PRO12 final defeat to Leinster on Saturday and will remain in Scotland for further assessment, Scottish Rugby has announced.

Taking their places are 25-year-old Edinburgh scrum-half Hart and 21-year-old Glasgow centre Bennett, who will join the Scotland squad in Houston later on Sunday ahead of next Saturday’s opening summer Test against the USA.

Scotland play further tests against Canada, Argentina and South Africa in the end-of-season tour.
