Scotland have called up Adam Hastings for Saturday’s Six Nations clash with Italy in Rome.

The Gloucester fly-half was a surprise omission from Gregor Townsend’s initial squad but has now been added to the group ahead of the fourth game in the tournament.

Uncapped Edinburgh lock Glen Young has also been included in the squad for this weekend’s match at Stadio Olimpico, along with Glasgow stand-off Ross Thompson.

In addition, Exeter lock Jonny Gray is back in the mix after injury caused him to miss the defeat at home to France last month.

Marshall Sykes, Nick Haining, Oli Kebble, Ollie Smith and Rufus McLean have all dropped out through injury.

Scotland travel to Italy looking to spark their campaign back into life following back-to-back defeats against Wales and France.
