England lose talented prop to Scotland as age-grade international receives surprise Scotland call-up

Northampton Saints prop Nick Auterac has been called up by Scotland for their summer fixtures.

The 28-year-old is one of 17 uncapped players in interim head coach Mike Blair’s squad ahead of matches against England A, Romania and Georgia this summer.

Blair takes interim charge with head coach Gregor Townsend part of the British and Irish Lions’ staff for the tour of South Africa.

Eight Scotland players are also unavailable because of Lions duty.

Edinburgh’s Jamie Ritchie – one of six players in the squad with more than 20 caps – will captain Scotland.
