Price injury leads to Shiel call-up

Price injury leads to Shiel call-up

Edinburgh scrum-half Charlie Shiel has been drafted into the Scotland squad to replace the injured Ali Price.

Glasgow Warriors' number nine Price picked up a groin injury in Scotland's recent win over Canada and, after being assessed, has been ruled out of the rest of the tour with games against USA and Argentina to come later this month.

Price is set to return to his club for further treatment and Shiel, who has recently joined Edinburgh, has been named as a replacement.

Shiel is set to join up with the rest of the Scotland camp in Houston and will hope to be involved against USA on June 17.

Lee Jones had earlier been ruled out of the final two tour games with a knee injury with Edinburgh's Dougie Fife called into the squad as cover.
