Scotland boss Gregor Townsend has named a 35-man squad for the 2021 Guinness Six Nations that includes an uncapped quartet of Edinburgh hooker David Cherry, Sale hooker Ewan Ashman, Gloucester forward Alex Craig and Bath centre Cameron Redpath, the son of former scrum-half Bryan.

Returning to the squad ahead of the February 6 opener versus England in London are Newcastle back row Gary Graham, Sale wing Byron McGuigan, Glasgow hooker Grant Stewart and London Irish prop Alan Dell.

Townsend said: “As coaches, we have selected a group which we believe can build on the work our players put in throughout the recent Autumn Nations Cup campaign and kick on again in terms of performance levels.

“The depth we have across the squad enables us to bring in some new players who have excelled in recent weeks and others who we believe can perform at Test level.

“Our tournament gets off to a fantastic start with a fixture we look forward to every year against England and the opportunity to win back the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham.

“We are very aware how different this year’s competition will be due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it also provides a huge amount of positivity and enjoyment for millions of supporters and we are looking forward to contesting every match and giving this championship our very best.”
