Jamie Ritchie to join Scotland World Cup squad in Japan

Back-row Jamie Ritchie will join up with the Scotland squad for the Rugby World Cup in Japan on Thursday, after undergoing specialist assessment for a facial injury.

The 23-year-old Edinburgh forward, who was part of the initial 31-man travelling squad, suffered the injury scare in Scotland’s 36-9 victory against Georgia last Friday and remained back home for a few additional days.

Ritchie will join Gregor Townsend’s squad at their training camp in Nagasaki, while Magnus Bradbury, who was called up as precautionary injury cover, will also remain with the group.
