Scotland coach Frank Hadden has added nine players to his training squad for the RBS Six Nations clash against Wales on Saturday.

All nine extra players added represented Scotland A in their win over Italy A on Friday and join as a precautionary measure.

The nine players are Moray Low, Alastair Kellock, Graeme Morrison, Phil Godman, Ben Cairns, Calum MacRae, Craig Hamilton, Alasdair Strokosch and Simon Danielli.

Nathan Hines was unable to train on Tuesday due to a calf injury, although he is expected to resume training on Wednesday, meaning the only player absent from Sunday's defeat to France is full-back Rory Lamont (shoulder and ankle).

Fillip

Hadden is boosted by the news that Andrew Henderson has been cleared to play against Wales despite headbutting Damien Traille on Sunday.

Six Nations citing commissioner Achille Reali decided no action should be taken following the incident involving Damien Traille and the Six Nations disciplinary panel felt there should be no citings from the weekend matches.

Henderson, playing on his 28th birthday for the national side for the 50th time, was incensed after Traille illegally blocked him and then aimed a punch at the Scot.

There was already bad feeling between the two players after a Heineken Cup match between Glasgow Warriors and Biarritz.

Referee Alain Rolland took advice from the television judge and, despite being informed there had been a headbutt, he only warned Henderson and awarded a penalty to France from the halfway line.

Hadden is awaiting further news on the injury front before naming his final XV on Tuesday or Wednesday.
