6N: Russell Missing again for Scotland for England Match

February 3, 2020

EDINBURGH, Scotland — Scotland has decided against recalling Finn Russell for the Six Nations match against England on Saturday after omitting the star flyhalf ahead of the opening-round loss to Ireland for breaching team rules.

With Russell missing, Scotland again will go with Adam Hastings and Duncan Weir as the options at No. 10 for the Calcutta Cup match against its old rival.

Russell, Scotland’s most creative and dangerous back, was disciplined by coach Gregor Townsend following an alleged late-night drinking session at the team hotel in the lead-up to the Ireland game. Scotland lost 19-12 in Dublin on Saturday.

It is not yet known whether Russell will be involved at all in this season’s tournament.

Scotland will again be without winger Darcy Graham, who remains sidelined with a knee injury.
