INVERNESS rugby player Jamie Dobie has been called up to the Scotland squad to face France in Paris in the Six Nations next weekend.
The 19-year-old Glasgow Warriors scrum half has been called up by head coach Gregor Townsend as a full member of the Scotland squad for the first time.
The former Highland player was previously invited to train with the Scotland squad earlier this season, although was not a full member of the Six Nations squad.
Now he could make his international debut at the Stade de France next Sunday.
The 19-year-old from Inverness has caught the eye with some impressive performances for club Glasgow Warriors and has been rewarded with international caps at youth level with the under-16s and under-18s – where he even wore the captain's armband.
Since signing professional terms straight out of school, Dobie has gone on to make 14 appearances for the Warriors, and he was named the club's young player of the year for the 2019/20 season.
Scotland will look to get their Six Nations challenge back on track after suffering a 25–24 defeat against Wales last week after beating England 11–6 at Twickenham in the opening round.
