Edinburgh back Jack Cuthbert has been called up to the Scotland squad preparing for Saturday's match against Italy in the Six Nations.

Edinburgh back Jack Cuthbert has been called up to the Scotland squad preparing for Saturday's match against Italy in the Six Nations.

The 26-year-old fullback/wing, who was an unused replacement in the corresponding match in Rome two years ago, is promoted from the Scotland A squad who drew 16-all with England Saxons last month.

Cuthbert, capped against Ireland in the World Cup warm-up Test in 2011, has made 14 starts for Edinburgh in his first season with the Capital club, having joined from Bath.

Meanwhile, scrumhalf Grayson Hart, his Edinburgh teammate who made his Scotland A debut against the Saxons, will train with the squad on Monday afternoon as Chris Cusiter sits out the session.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said: "Having completed the game for Glasgow Warriors at Cardiff at the weekend, Chris Cusiter subsequently reported to national camp today with a tight calf.

"Given the proximity of Saturday's international in Rome, Chris will undergo a precautionary scan at the Murrayfield Hospital this afternoon in order that we can have a more definitive assessment.”
