Scott Hastings' international career looks to be at an end after he was left out of the Scotland squad sessions leading up to the autumn internationals with Australia and South Africa.

The Watsonians and Edinburgh centre won the last of his record 66 caps as a replacement against England in last year's Five Nations' Championship. He was also omitted from the A squad, one of six players from an original party of 61 selected for the first two sessions of the season who failed to win a place in either squad.

"It was felt that Scott lost form and he is struggling to regain it at the moment," Richie Dixon, the national coach, said. "But we never say never again. There is still a way back for him."
