Finn Russell: Scotland fly-half left out of squad for England match

Finn Russell has been omitted from Scotland’s squad for Saturday’s Calcutta Cup match at home to England.

The fly-half, 27, had left the squad prior to the 19-12 defeat by Ireland for “breaching team protocol” during a drinking session.

Defence coach Steve Tandy says he has “no idea” whether Russell will feature in this year’s Six Nations.

But Tandy confirmed head coach Gregor Townsend “is in dialogue” with the Racing 92 player.

“Throughout this period we’ve been after cohesion with as many players doing as many training sessions as we can,” said Tandy. “We’re looking for cohesion across these first two games.”
