Scotland names uncapped props Fagerson and Sutherland
EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) Scotland coach Vern Cotter has named uncapped props Zander Fagerson and Rory Sutherland in his 35-man squad for the Six Nations rugby tournament.
Alex Dunbar, who missed last year's World Cup because of a knee injury, also made his return alongside fellow center Duncan Taylor.
Fagerson, who turns 20 on Wednesday, could become the youngest prop to represent Scotland since Bill Black debuted against France at Murrayfield in 1948.
After a training camp starting Sunday, Scotland will get its Six Nations campaign underway against England on Feb. 6.
Cotter says ''there are positive signs that we can compete, and this championship will give us another opportunity to measure ourselves against very good opposition in a tough competition.''
