Sale Sharks Scrum-Half Gus Warr Included in Scotland’s Uncapped Summer Tour Squad

Sale Sharks scrum-half Gus Warr is one of 10 uncapped players included by Scotland boss Gregor Townsend for this summer’s four-game North and South American tour. The dual-qualified half-back had been touted for a potential call-up from Steve Borthwick’s England, but has instead declared his allegiance to the Scots for their upcoming trip.

Townsend has named a 37-man squad for the Skyscanner Americas tour, with 10 players set to make their international debuts in matches against Canada, USA, Chile, and Uruguay. The uncapped players on tour are Nathan McBeth, Patrick Harrison, Robbie Smith, Will Hurd, Max Williamson, Ewan Johnson, Gregor Brown, Gus Warr, Arron Reed, and Matt Currie.

Several of the uncapped players have recent experience with the Scotland squad, including loosehead prop McBeth, back-five forward Brown, and second row Williamson from Glasgow Warriors, as well as winger Arron Reed from Sale who was in the Guinness Six Nations squad earlier this year.

The 10 uncapped players join a host of experienced Scotland internationals who featured in the Six Nations campaign. This includes Rory Darge, Luke Crosbie, Javan Sebastian, Elliot Millar-Mills, Ewan Ashman, Rory Sutherland, Ben Healy, Harry Paterson, George Horne, Kyle Rowe, Stafford McDowall, Duhan van der Merwe, Sione Tuipulotu, Matt Fagerson, Pierre Schoeman, Scott Cummings, and Kyle Steyn.
