Inverness-born rugby player Jamie Dobie has been named as one of five uncapped players in the full Scotland squad for their upcoming series of Autumn internationals.

Tonga, Australia, South Africa and Japan will be making the journey to Edinburgh over the next month, and Dobie will be hoping to get on the pitch against at least one of them to make his senior international debut.

Although the first of the fixtures against Tonga a week on Saturday comes outside of the designated international window, meaning that the team will likely be made up exclusively of Warriors and Edinburgh players, scrum half Dobie will still face stiff competition from clubmates Ali Price and George Horne.

The 20-year-old has impressed even at such a young age for the Glasgow Warriors, and was first called up for national service in February for the Six Nations match against France having previously been in Gregor Townsend's training squad.

He does have experience in the international fold at youth level, though, turning out for Scotland's under-16s and under-18s squads.
