“Having the ability to play four games on this year’s summer tour is a brilliant opportunity for us,” said head coach Townsend.

“It will enable us to spend added time working with a wider group of players, building more cohesion with our squad and also giving more players experiences of preparing for and playing Test match rugby.

“With the travel demands and contrasting styles of rugby from the four nations we face, we will be challenged on and off the field to deliver quality performances.

“Touring is a great way for a group to build closer bonds and I’m sure we’ll see new players come through and thrive in our environment.”

The Scots will face Canada in Ottawa on Saturday 6 July, USA in Washington on Friday 12 July, Chile in Santiago on Saturday 20 July and Uruguay in Montevideo on Saturday 27 July.
