Lamont added to Scotland squad for June tour

Sean Lamont has been included in the Scotland squad

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.
