The former sprinter has a 10.67 100m time and all with a 6’4 frame. Owsley is qualified for Scotland through his grandmother, who is from Govan.

Scotland international Darcy Graham will return on the other wing while centre Cammy Hutchison and Fijian number eight Mesu Kunavula also come back from injury, the latter making his first start of the season.

Former Harlequins lock Glen Young will make his first start for the club and Dave Cherry is back in the team while Stuart McInally is available again as one of the replacements.

Head Coach Mike Blair said: “We were obviously frustrated with last weekend’s loss to London Irish, however, after a good week of training you can feel the buzz around the squad to get a reaction and we’re really excited to be back in front of our home support at DAM Health Stadium this Friday night.

“We’ve made a number of changes to the squad and we’re excited to see those guys get their chance, including Freddie, who’s had to remain patient for his opportunity but has really invested in himself by working hard at his game and driving his self-improvement.

“We’ve spoken this week about physicality and speed of thought but also around engaging our supporters by imposing our game on Brive.”
