Scotland lock Nathan Hines was unable to train with his team-mates this afternoon as preparations were stepped up for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations Championship visit to Wales.
Hines (Perpignan) has a calf injury from last weekend’s loss to France. Scotland team doctor James Robson expects Hines to be able to resume training tomorrow (Wednesday).
Nine players have been added to those who were on duty against France (the only absentee from that 23 was Rory Lamont who has been ruled out through ankle and shoulder injuries from the Welsh match) and trained with the squad indoors at Riccarton today.
The nine were on duty with the Scotland A team during their 37-15 win against the Italians on Sunday. They are: Moray Low, Alastair Kellock and Graeme Morrison (all Glasgow Warriors), Phil Godman, Ben Cairns, Calum MacRae and Craig Hamilton (all Edinburgh), Alasdair Strokosch (Gloucester) and Simon Danielli (Ulster).
