Edinburgh prop Sebastian was not included in the initial 39-man pool, named earlier this month, as he battled to recover from a knee injury sustained in December.

However, the 29-year-old – who went to the World Cup with Scotland – has now been deemed fit enough to be enlisted for duty after his fellow tighthead and clubmate WP Nel withdrew with a neck strain.

Glasgow stand-off Thompson has also been called up to compete with Finn Russell and Ben Healy for the number 10 jersey after Adam Hastings dropped out through injury last week.

Warriors pair Euan Ferrie and Jamie Dobie are not officially part of the squad but are currently training with the players in Spain as they step up preparations for Saturday’s showdown with Wales in Cardiff.
