McCann handed Scotland call-up for Americas tour

Edinburgh winger Ross McCann has been called up for Scotland's tour of the Americas this summer.

The 26-year-old will fly out with the squad this weekend for games against Canada, USA, Chile and Uruguay.

McCann joins the national set-up from GB Sevens after recently featuring at the Monaco repechage where a 14-5 defeat by South Africa in the final ended hopes of qualification for this summer's Paris Olympics.

Uncapped McCann - who made his Edinburgh debut last October and has signed a two-year deal to join on a permanent basis this summer - is the club's 12th player to be called up for the tour.

The games against Chile (20 July) and Uruguay (27 July) will be shown live on BBC Scotland. Gregor Townsend's men begin the tour against Canada on 6 July and face the USA six days later.
