GREGOR TOWNSEND has adjusted his Scotland training squad for the upcoming Autumn Test series, with Edinburgh centre Mark Bennett and Glasgow Warriors hooker Fraser Brown dropping out due to knee injuries.

Two Edinburgh players have been added to the 42-strong group, with Dave Cherry coming in as a like-for-like replacement for Brown at hooker, while Magnus Bradbury‘s recent form has earned him a call-up in the back-row.

Meanwhile, flanker Rory Darge wore a moon boot and did not train today having picked up a knock during Glasgow’s defeat to Leinster on Friday night
