According to Telfer, they have all impressed when given their chance in the warm-up matches but while Maitland was a replacement in the first Test and Grant in the second, neither have taken to the field.
And after watching Scott Johnson lead Scotland to third place in this year’s RBS 6 Nations, Telfer was expecting to see the Scots feature more Down Under.
"I am surprised because each one of them has done very well when they've been on the field," said Telfer.
"Scotland did reasonably well in the Six Nations and probably should have had more players in the touring party.
“The one, for me, closest to selection is Richie Gray after the loss of O'Connell, who was always going to be the number one second row.
"And I think Ryan Grant has been very unfairly dealt with because he's a better scrummager than Mako Vunipola.
"I'm disappointed by the lack of our players in the 23. Stuart Hogg was the player of the tour in the early stages.
"Hogg and Maitland cannot be too disappointed about not being in the XV. But whether Hogg's versatility could have been used in the third Test is open to debate because he adds a spark when he plays.
"There hasn't been much spontaneity about the backs.
"The Scottish boys will be disappointed but it will give them an incentive and they are young and will have learned on the tour."
Gray may yet become to first Scot to win a cap on tour, having been named on the bench as second row cover for captain Alun Wyn Jones and Geoff Parling for Saturday’s decider in Sydney.
