Warriors trio return to Scotland squad for France clash


Alex Dunbar, Henry Pyrgos and Fraser Brown have all returned to Scotland's Six Nations squad for their clash with France.

The Glasgow Warriors trio had missed Scotland's first three games because of injuries but are all available for France's visit to Murrayfield as Vern Cotter's men aim for a second straight win after seeing off Italy last time out.

Centre Dunbar had been kept out of action because of a thigh injury, while scrum-half Pyrgos and hooker Brown are back to fitness following wrist and ankle issues respectively.

Brown comes in for George Turner, whose Edinburgh team-mate Matt Scott is due to undergo an MRI scan after the centre his elbow playing against Connacht on Friday.

Sunday's contest will see Scotland look for their first victory over France since 2006.
