Edinburgh Rugby back-row David Denton is one of five players called into the Scotland squad for Saturday’s Six Nations clash with Italy.

Denton joins Glasgow Warriors duo Adam Ashe (No.8) and Alex Allan (prop), Sale Sharks scrum-half Chris Cusiter and Exeter Chiefs prop Moray Low in Scotland head coach Vern Cotter’s group.

Denton missed the start of the tournament due to a calf tear and like Cusister and Ashe comes into the fray now that he has regained full fitness.

Low and Allan are direct replacements for Glasgow Warriors pair Jon Welsh (hand) and Gordon Reid (knee), who were injured against Wales two weekends ago.
