Shiells at the ready

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY NOVEMBER 1 -

NEW­CAS­TLE Fal­cons prop Grant Shiells has been called Scot­land’s into

train­ing camp ahead of the au­tumn T est with New Zealand. Shiells is at St An­drews due to in­jury con­cerns over

three of the four pr ops named in head coach Andy Robin­son’s 34-man squad last week. Ryan Grant suf­fered a head knock in Glas­gow War­riors’ match at T re­viso at the week­end, while Al­lan Ja­cob­sen (ham­string) and Ge­off Cross (con­cus­sion) are still strug­gling for full fit­ness.

Robin­son said: “We’ve in­vited Grant to train with us given some of the re­cent in­juries we’ve had on both sides of the front row.”
