Thirteen Warriors in Scotland squad to face Wales

Thirteen Glasgow Warriors have been named in the Scotland squad to face Wales in the Doddie Weir Cup this Saturday.

It Is almost a full Warriors back-line with full-back the only position not occupied by a Glasgow player.

Ali Price and Adam Hastings combine at half-back while outside them Alex Dunbar and Huw Jones continue their partnership in midfield. 

Lee Jones starts on one wing with Tommy Seymour starting on the other, the latter has been named vice-captain.

Up front, Jonny Gray starts in the engine room while Ryan Wilson packs down at number 8, the Warriors co-captain joining Seymour as a vice-captain.

Front row pair Alex Allan and Fraser Brown will look to make an impact off the bench, as will Matt Fagerson who has been in exceptional form for his club in recent games. 

The Horne brothers are the replacement half-back pairing, having both scored against Munster at Thomond Park last Saturday.
