Latest news

    John Hardie has recently returned to action with Edinburgh

    John Hardie has been called into Scotland’s Six Nations squad for the first time since serving a three-month ban for alleged cocaine use.

    Flanker Hardie, 29, is one of 10 players added by Gregor Townsend before Saturday’s meeting with Ireland.

    Lock Richie Gray, wings Byron McGuigan and Lee Jones, centre Alex Dunbar and front-rows Fraser Brown, Darryl Marfo and Zander Fagerson return from injury.

    Scrum-half George Horne receives a first senior call-up.

    Hardie, who has three tries in 16 Scotland appearances, returned to training with Edinburgh in January following his suspension for “gross misconduct” and then played a match for Hawick.

    He featured from the start as Edinburgh won away to Ulster and Dragons in February.
