Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said: “We welcome Josh into our squad as we look to build on our opening two games of the Championship.

“We have been following his performances with Bath and a combination of his form and a couple of injuries in our squad, have given us the opportunity to involve him for the first time.

“We are also delighted to add Jamie Dobie to our group following his impressive outing for Glasgow on Friday night and the quality he showed while training with us prior to our game against England.”

Bath’s Jamie Bhatti, Worcester’s Cornell du Preez and Glasgow Warriors duo Rob Harley and Sam Johnson also make their return to the squad.
