Cornell du Preez called up by Scotland

Warriors back-row forward Cornell du Preez has been called into Scotland’s squad for Sunday’s Guinness Six Nations match against France in Paris.

Du Preez won the most recent of his nine caps against Wales in Llanelli last October and was part of Scotland’s squad throughout their Autumn Nations Cup campaign.

With two back-row forwards, Gary Graham and Blade Thompson, ruled out by injury, Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend has called du Preez into a 36-man squad to prepare to face France.
