Date published: June 19 2016

Glasgow Warriors prop Gordon Reid will join the Scotland squad in Tokyo on Monday as an injury replacement for Alasdair Dickinson.

Dickinson sustained a hamstring injury in the third minute of Scotland’s 26-13 win over Japan at the Toyota City Stadium and will return home for further care and assessment.

Several other players require the ongoing care of the Scotland medical team, with John Barclay (shoulder), Willem Nel (knee) Duncan Taylor (hamstring) and Ryan Wilson (knee) requiring further management and assessment during the early part of this week.

Scotland will play Japan in the second and final summer Test match this Saturday at the Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo.
