Heathcote in Scotland squad

18 February 2013

Fresh from an outstanding performance in the bonus point win over London Irish on Saturday, Bath Rugby fly-half Tom Heathcote has been added to the Scotland squad as they prepare for their RBS 6 Nations clash against Ireland on Sunday.

Heathcote is one of 13 players added by Scott Johnson, whose only unavailable player from the 23 man squad who beat Italy is tighthead prop Euan Murray, who does not play on Sundays for religious reasons.

The players called up are forwards:  Jon Welsh, Dougie Hall, Tom Ryder, John Barclay (all Glasgow Warriors), Alasdair Dickinson and Richie Vernon (Sale Sharks) and Grant Gilchrist (Edinburgh Rugby), backs:  Sean Kennedy, Alex Dunbar, Peter Horne, Peter Murchie (all Glasgow Warriors), Tom Heathcote (Bath Rugby) and Nikki Walker (Worcester Warriors).

The Scotland team to play Ireland is due to be announced on Wednesday, so good luck, Tommy!
