Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has added Edinburgh winger Dougie Fife to their squad for the upcoming tour of United States of America in Houston on 16th June.

The decision follows after Lee Jones sustained a knee injury during their opening game of the series against Canada at Commonwealth Stadium which the Dark Blues went on to win with a 10-48 margin.

Jones left the field in the 30th minute of the game which also saw hooker Fraser Brown forced off the field with a rib injury.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said: "It was a Test match, both teams were physical. Canada did a lot of good things, they were dangerous when they got the ball.

"That is the difference between training and playing in a game, especially with a team that has never played before - some players who have never played for Scotland and some who have only got to know their team-mates a few weeks ago.

"While there were some frustrations with parts of the game, it was great that we got over that. We worked hard and came away with a good win.

"There are a few aspects I don't want to share where we have to improve. The USA [who they play next Saturday] seem a really good team on form. They are a team going places and will be a big threat."

Following the game against USA, Scotland will face Argentina in the final game of the June series in Resistencia on 23rd June.
