Also included is highly rated 16-year-old prop Craig ‘Junior’ Strachan, of whom Scotland coach Craig Parslow is expecting some good performances.
“And Fraser has made a big impact in the game and proven to be a handful on the park with some very educated footwork and ferocity on the field which has earned him his position.”
Parslow is also pleased that the team have found some fixtures, and that they will be testing games south of the Border.
“We are extremely grateful for all the clubs that have managed to work with us in obtaining some fixtures and I have to admit it’s not been an easy task,” he added.
“What is great to see is this year we are really trying to push our home-grown players and give them some experiences that they won’t get at club level and we all know playing for the blue jersey makes you step your game up.”
