Head coach Gregor Townsend has added six players to his Scotland squad for the 2018 autumn Tests.

Glasgow Warriors quartet Adam Ashe (back row), Scott Cummings (lock), Nick Grigg (centre) and Stuart Hogg (full back) are joined by English Premiership pair Josh Strauss (Sale Sharks back row) and Duncan Weir (Worcester Warriors stand-off).

Having lost to Wales on Saturday, where they could not call up players from outside Scotland, Townsend's side now host Fiji on Saturday, before games against South Africa and Argentina, all at Murrayfield.

The additions follow injuries sustained by Scarlets back row Blade Thomson (head) and Harlequins centre James Lang (rib) playing for their clubs at the weekend.

David Denton (Leicester Tigers) and Matt Scott (Edinburgh) continue their ongoing recovery from head injuries with their respective clubs.

Edinburgh trio Ross Ford (hooker), Henry Pyrgos (scrum-half) and Dougie Fife (wing) have been released back to the club.
