WARRIORS star Euan Murray has been named in the Scotland squad ahead of the RBS Six Nations Championship.

The 32-year-old prop, who has made six appearance for Worcester, is part of interim head coach Scott Johnson's 35-man squad which is scheduled to meet in Glasgow next Sunday for a three-day training camp.

But there was no place for Alex Grove, who has not featured in a Scotland jersey since 2009, while fellow Warriors back Nikki Walker has also not been named in the squad, which includes ten uncapped players.

However, Johnson revealed there is still an option to add to the playing squad after the training camp.

"We've chosen this squad with two parameters uppermost in our minds: current form and looking to the future," Johnson said.

"Where two players have been vying for the one spot in areas such as the back-row, we've gone with the form option.

"This squad is for our training camp in Glasgow next week and we still have the option to add to it for the Six Nations."
