Euan Murray: Back in Scotland squad

Sky Bet

Euan Murray and Alasdair Strokosch have been recalled to Scotland's squad for this Saturday'ss Six Nations clash with Wales.

Murray, the 32-year-old tight-head prop, and 31-times-capped Perpignan flanker Strokosch both missed last month's 12-8 win over Ireland.

Murray was unavailable as he will not play on Sunday for religious reasons, while Strokosch was ruled out by a facial injury he suffered in the defeat to England at Twickenham.

Of those who were in the match-day 23 against Ireland only Edinburgh back-row David Denton is unavailable to interim coach Scott Johnson.

Denton picked up a knee injury while on duty for his club in their RaboDirect PRO12 defeat to the Scarlets at the weekend.

Ryan Wilson, the uncapped Glasgow Warriors No 8, who led Scotland A to their win against England Saxons last month, replaces him.

The Scotland team to face the Welsh at Murrayfield is due to be announced on Tuesday at noon.
