March 12 (Reuters) - Scotland recalled centre Richie Vernon after a three-year absence alongside four other call-ups for their last Six Nations match against Italy in Rome on Saturday, Scottish Rugby said on Monday.
Vernon’s Glasgow Warriors team mates Scott Cummings (lock), Matt Fagerson (loose forward) and Adam Hastings (flyhalf) were included in the squad for the first time this year.
The 21-year-old Hastings is the son of former Scotland captain Gavin Hastings.
Scotland won their home games against France and England in this year’s competition but lost in Wales and Ireland. (Reporting by Mark Gleeson; Editing by Ed Osmond)
