The squad depart for Cape Town with seven Scotland internationalists involved in the Six Nations set to travel depending on availability.

Edinburgh head coach Sean Everitt said: “We’re really excited for the challenge of this tour, taking on two of South Africa’s biggest sides on their own turf.

“As a team, we’ve spoken about the physicality and belief needed to win in Cape Town and Durban – they are the non-negotiables. It’s now about showing the fight and resilience that has lifted us to fourth place in the Championship.”

Everitt continued: “Our returning Scotland internationalists bring quality and experience, and they will travel depending on availability. The only fit player unavailable to tour is Ali Price who remains in Scotland for the birth of his child.”
