Bhatti and Bayliss receive Scotland call-ups

2 June 2021

Jamie Bhatti and Josh Bayliss have been named in a 37-strong Scotland squad for their upcoming summer fixtures.

Interim head coach, Mike Blair, will oversee a group for games against England A, Romania and Georgia. 

With eight Scottish players unavailable following their selection for the British & Irish Lions’ own tour to South Africa, Scotland’s squad combines youth and experience and provides an opportunity for players two years out from a Rugby World Cup to demonstrate their international credentials.

Bhatti featured in the Six Nations, earning his 18th cap in Round 5 against Italy while Josh Bayliss is uncapped. 

The homegrown Bath Rugby Academy graduate qualifies for Scotland through his Aberdeen-born grandmother and was in line for a debut in the spring but for the cancellation of the Round 3 match against France ahead of a concussion.

Everybody at Bath would like to wish Jamie and Josh a huge congratulations on their latest achievement!
