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

Ritchie, from Strathkinness, and Horne, of Cupar, will gather on June 15 June to prepare for the England A fixture on June 27, with a smaller squad then travelling to Romania and Georgia.
