    Forwards: John Barclay, Johnnie Beattie, Kelly Brown (all Glasgow Warriors), Alasdair Dickinson (Gloucester), Ross Ford (Edinburgh), Richie Gray, Dougie Hall (both Glasgow Warriors), Jim Hamilton (Edinburgh), Nathan Hines (Leinster), Allan Jacobsen (Edinburgh), Alastair Kellock (Glasgow Warriors), Scott Lawson (Gloucester), Moray Low (Glasgow Warriors), Alan MacDonald (Edinburgh), Euan Murray (Northampton Saints), Alasdair Strokosch (Gloucester)

    Backs: Chris Cusiter (Glasgow Warriors), Simon Danielli (Ulster), Nick De Luca (Edinburgh), Max Evans, Thom Evans (Glasgow Warriors), Phil Godman (Edinburgh), Alex Grove (Worcester), Ruaridh Jackson (Glasgow Warriors), Sean Lamont (Scarlets), Rory Lawson (Gloucester), Graeme Morrison (Glasgow Warriors), Chris Paterson (Edinburgh), Dan Parks (Glasgow Warriors) and Hugo Southwell (Stade Francais).

    Invited to train with the squad at St Andrews (25-28 January): Mike Blair (who is recovering from an ankle injury), Ross Rennie and Jim Thompson (all Edinburgh) and Jon Welsh (Glasgow Warriors).

    Not considered due to illness / injury: Richie Vernon (Glasgow Warriors), Allister Hogg (Edinburgh) and Jason White (Clermont Auvergne).

    Rory Lamont may join the squad providing he gets through his club game next week. No places for Ben Cairns, Kyle Traynor, Scott MacLeod, Geoff Cross and Nikki Walker who were all in the squad for the Autumn internationals. Parks is recalled and Murray, Dickinson & Hamilton return after injury. Jackson and Gray are the only two uncapped players in the squad.

    Pleased to see Parks recalled, been in really good form and I'm not really a fan of Godman.

    Would guess our starting XV for the France game being (Murray unavailible);

    Paterson, S Lamont, Grove, Morrison, T Evans, Godman/Parks, Cusiter; Jacobsen, Ford, Low, Hines, Kellock, Strokosch, Barclay, Beattie.

    subs: Hall, Dickinson, Hamilton, Brown, R Lawson, M Evans, Southwell.

  3. Nikki Walker has been playing very well for the Ospreys, far better than Lamont has for the Scarlets. I suppose this may just be down to the fact that they plan to play defensivly again, but attempting to strike once and again powerfully, and Lamont certainly fits the bill, where as whilst Walker is a big fella, he tries to score almost every time he gets the ball.

    Still, I'm happy enough with this squad and hope it could be the one that beats everyone but Wales. Doubt it, but that's how I'd like it to be.

  5. Southwell is playing very well with Stade Français too at the moment. But Paterson has the boot so I guess he has to start. I think Southwell offers more attacking options though

    If we pick Southwell, he could be our replacement scrum half. Thanks Stade :p

    I really hope that Scotland keep improving, so this gets to be less of a shut tournament for them.
    Also, any news on captaincy? Is Cusiter keeping it until Blair gets back and they can continue sharing?
