Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has included five uncapped players in the 39-man squad for the upcoming Six Nations tournament.
London Irish scrum-half Ben White along with Saracens' Andy Christie have been included in the squad for the time along with Rory Darge, Ben Vellacott and Kyle Rowe.
Bath centre Cameron Redpath has overcome his injury to be part of the squad that will be captained by Stuart Hogg and will have the experience of Finn Russell, Ali Price, Zander Fagerson, Chris Harris, Rory Sutherland, Duhan van der Merwe and Hamish Watson.
Northampton centre Rory Hutchinson, who last featured for Scotland in February 2020 has been recalled.
“When you look through the squad this is the most competitive I’ve seen it in so many areas and that’s testament to the strength and depth we have,” said Townsend.
“We are able to call up several new players into the squad such as Andy Christie, Kyle Rowe and Ben White. We have been aware of all of the uncapped players for a while now and recently they have all experienced a breakthrough in terms of their performances at club level.
“A key part of the squad selection was rewarding form and that definitely applies to Ben Vellacott and Rory Darge who have been excellent for their clubs this season.
“We’re delighted to be able to include Cameron Redpath in the squad after missing the last few months with injury. He managed to get a game under his belt prior to the squad selection so we’ll see how he performs for Bath and in our training over the next couple of weeks.
“The Six Nations is the best competition we have in rugby so to be involved in it is a real privilege, especially starting with our oldest rivals in front of a sold-out home crowd.”
