Glasgow Warriors wing Sean Lamont has been included in the 27-man Scotland squad for next month’s summer tour to Japan, as an injury replacement for Tim Visser.
The 104-times capped internationalist is a direct replacement for the injured Harlequins wing, who was ruled out of the tour with a knee injury sustained while representing his club in the European Rugby Challenge Cup Final.
Earlier this week Matt Scott – the Gloucester-bound Edinburgh Rugby centre – was also added to the Scotland squad.
Scott was a direct replacement for injured Glasgow Warriors centre, Alex Dunbar, who was ruled out of the tour with a knee injury he sustained while representing his club in the Guinness PRO12.
