Fagerson And Nel Train Ahead of England Clash
Written by RockSport on February 17, 2018
Scotland tight-head props WP Nel and Zander Fagerson have returned to training before next Saturday’s Six Nations meeting with England.
Gregor Townsend’s side host the Calcutta Cup meeting, having beaten France in Edinburgh last Sunday.
“It is a huge boost to have those experienced players in similar positions,” Townsend said.
“The other is Richie Gray and we will know more this weekend whether he will be back full training too.”
Like Nel and Fagerson, lock Gray missed the championship opening defeat away to Wales and the tense win over France.
“[WP Nel] trained with us on Wednesday, we’re just having a look,” Townsend explained.
