England U20 star named in Scotland Six Nations squad

Gregor Townsend has named a 35-man Scotland Six Nations squad for the 2021 Guinness Six Nations, which begins with the Calcutta Cup clash vs England on Saturday 6 February.

The group, split between 20 forwards and 15 backs, sees eight new players called up who did not feature in the group that contested the recent 2020 Autumn Nations Cup.


Redpath, son of former Scotland captain Bryan, represented England Under-20s and has been called into squads by Eddie Jones without winning a full cap.

He is one of four uncapped players in Gregor Townsend’s 35-man squad.

1. Harry Randall (Wales)

Despite their strength in depth at scrum-half, Wayne Pivac is still reportedly trying to convince the Bristol playmaker to play for Wales. The 22-year-old was born in Slough to two English parents, has played for England at Under-20 level, but is also understood to be eligible for Wales despite not being born in the country or having Welsh parents or grandparents.

He was, however, raised in west Wales, educated at Llandovery College – and quite audibly has a Welsh accent – and is thought to be eligible for Wales because he spent more than 10 consecutive years living in Wales from the age of four, a period of time which qualifies him under World Rugby regulation 8.
