Scotland call up Saracens lock
TEAM NEWS: Saracens lock Callum Hunter-Hill was called into the Scotland squad ahead of this weekend’s year-end Test against Argentina at Murrayfield.
The 25-year-old former Glasgow and Edinburgh second row forward was added to the squad after Hamish Watson and Rory Sutherland withdrew due to injuries they sustained in the past Sunday’s agonising 23-31 loss to New Zealand in Edinburgh that left the Scots still searching for their first win over the All Blacks.
Watson sustained a concussion during the match, while Sutherland left the field with a knee problem shortly after coming on as a replacement.
Hunter-Hill, who represented Scotland at Under-18 and Under-20 level, remains uncapped at full international level.
Hamish Watson is out of the squad having sustained a concussion against the All Blacks. Rory Sutherland has also returned to his club to recover from a knee injury.
