National selection honours
Congratulations to Fraser Brown who was selected to start on Saturday for Scotland against Ireland. Sadly his involvement lasted but 25 minutes after he clashed heads and although he was able to return after treatment he was replaced. Early indications are that the injury will not rule him out of selection for this weekend’s match against France.
At National U18 level Guy Kelly and Andrew Nimmo both took part in a training match on Sunday between the members of the Scotland U18 squad. Both props acquitted themselves well and will now continue to train prior to the 6Nations Championship in March. Meanwhile Andrew Jardine who has had a frustrating season due to injury will continue his latest return to action after rib injury. He will keep his fingers crossed that he will be considered for the March event.
