GREGOR TOWNSEND will name his Scotland team for the opening game of the 2020 Autumn Test schedule later today [Wednesday]. Former Scotland stars and current gin entrepreneurs Ruaridh Jackson and Ryan Grant, join host Jack Reid and The Offside Line’s David Barnes to look ahead to Georgia’s visit to Murrayfield on Friday night.

Townsend has named the biggest training squad (40 players) of the Home Unions, with a few old heads and some new faces looking to make an impact. How will Finn Russell reintegrate into the squad? What does Blair Cowan add to the party? What about the most recent Jock Boks Oli Kebble and Duhan van Der Merwe? Why did Sam Hildago-Clyne not make the cut? Who will put their hands up for the Lions next year? 

The following video may – or may not – answer those questions:
