Gregor Townsend has wrapped a number of his key men up in cotton wool after leaving them out of Scotland’s World Cup send-off with Georgia at Murrayfield on Friday night.

Skipper Stuart McInally, Fraser Brown, John Barclay, Greig Laidlaw, Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg have all be spared action as Townsend takes no risks as the clock ticks down to their opener with Ireland in Yokohama on September 22.

However, Jonny Gray returns from a hamstring injury to make his first appearance of the warm-up series, while hooker Grant Stewart and flanker Magnus Bradbury have both been given a consolation slot on the bench after missing out on a place in Townsend’s 31-man squad for Japan.
