Ford injury blow for Scotland

Head Coach Gregor Townsend has added three Edinburgh forwards to the Scotland squad for the November Tests against Samoa, New Zealand and Australia.

Back-row Magnus Bradbury, prop Rory Sutherland and uncapped hooker Neil Cochrane – the latter a replacement for the injured Ross Ford – started training with the squad at Oriam on Monday.
