Johnson delves deep for new recruits
Scotland head coach Scott Johnson has sprung surprises in his training squad for the autumn Tests by including London Irish forwards Blair Cowan and Kieran Low.
The pair are among five uncapped players in a 41-man squad named ahead of next month’s Murrayfield matches against Japan, South Africa and Australia. The other three – Mark Bennett, Jonny Gray and Chris Fusaro – are Glasgow Warriors players.
Fusaro was denied a six nations debut by a groin injury which kept him out for nine months, while Johnson had previously praised Bennett and Gray for their impact on Glasgow’s excellent early-season form.
