Glasgow - Gregor Townsend has named seven uncapped players in his 41-man squad for Scotland's pre-season training camp in St Andrews.

Townsend's side will meet up on Sunday for a two-day camp that includes fresh faces Glasgow back-row Matt Fagerson and Edinburgh wing Darcy Graham.

The duo, who both shone for Scotland's under-20s at this year's World Cup, are joined by fellow newcomers Jamie Ritchie, Scott Cummings, Jamie Bhatti, Phil Burleigh and Anton Bresler.

Injured British and Irish Lion Stuart Hogg is also among a group of six casualties invited by Scottish boss Townsend to attend the camp.

"This camp is an opportunity to bring the players together who are foremost in our thoughts for the autumn Tests," Townsend said.

"It's an important step in our preparations for what will be three very tough Test matches."

Scotland face Samoa, New Zealand and Australia in their autumn fixtures.
