Vern Cotter could hand Kevin Bryce his Scotland debut this summer
Hooker Kevin Bryce struggled to contain his surprise after being called up to the Scotland squad for the summer tours to North America and the Southern Hemisphere.
The 25-year-old has only made two league appearances for Glasgow Warriors this season, spending the majority of his time with Heriot's in the Scottish Premiership.
But despite his relative lack of experience, Bryce was one of only nine players who was selected to play a full part in the tour with new head coach Vern Cotter coming in after Scotland finished fifth in this year's RBS 6 Nations.
And while Bryce is unlikely to even make the bench for Glasgow's league final against Leinster, the hooker is already itching to get a taste of the international set-up.
"I was over the moon and gobsmacked at the same time," he said.
"I've hardly played any professional rugby so to get the call-up was a shock. My last game was for Caley Reds against Newcastle Falcons about two weeks ago.
"If you had told me after that that I would be in the Scotland squad I would have said you are having a laugh."
