Scotland lose Ali Price to injury

Date published: June 12 2018

Newly-signed Edinburgh scrum-half Charlie Shiel has been added to the Scotland squad as an injury replacement for Glasgow’s Ali Price.

The Warriors number nine sustained a groin injury in the national team’s opening June tour win over Canada in Edmonton (48-10), with further assessment in Houston, Texas – where Scotland play their next fixture against the USA – ruling him out of the rest of the tour.

Price will return home to the care of his club’s medical team, with recent BT Sport Academy graduate (and son of former Scotland cap Graham), Shiel, arriving in Houston later on Tuesday, having debuted for Scotland 7s in the Paris leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series last weekend.

Scotland will complete their 2018 June Test campaign against Argentina in Resistencia on Saturday, June 23.
