McCallum A ” Solution ” For Scots
Written by RockSport on January 15, 2018
Uncapped Murray McCallum could be the best solution to Scotland’s front-row problems, says former international prop Peter Wright.
Simon Beghan is suspended for the Six Nations opener in Wales on 3 February.
And Darryl Marfo, Zander Fargerson WP Nel, Ross Ford, Allan Dell, and Al Dickinson are all injured.
“We’re potentially looking at bringing back Moray Low or Jon Welsh but, for me, McCallum at Edinburgh is worth a shot,” Wright told a press conference.
“He has improved a lot over the last couple of seasons, so why not give him a crack?”
Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend will announce his Six Nations squad on Tuesday.
McCallum, 21, is an age-grade international at loose-head, who has been pitched in at tight-head for his club.
