Shiel called into Scotland squad

Edinburgh scrum-half Charlie Shiel has been added to the Scotland squad as an injury replacement for Ali Price.

Shiel, 20, will travel to Houston later today having debuted for Scotland 7s in the Paris leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series last weekend. The scrum-half follows in the footsteps of both his father, Graham, and grandfather, Dougie Morgan, who earned 18 and 21 caps for Scotland respectively.

Price sustained a groin injury in the national team’s opening summer tour win over Canada in Edmonton (48-10), with further assessment in Houston, Texas – where Scotland play their next fixture against the USA – ruling him out of the rest of the tour.

Scotland will complete the 2018 Summer Test campaign against Argentina in Resistencia on Saturday 23 June (kick-off 4.40pm, 8.40pm UK time), which will be shown live on Channel 4.
