Scotland Squad for Summer tour

Can't really pick a bad back line from that lot.

Lamont/Evans/Ansbro - with Visser taking the 11 shirt for Fiji


I'd have taken McInally and MacArthur and possibly Shiells too but don't really have many complaints about the squad.

What I can not understand is why Edinburgh would sign a couple of Welsh players, it's not as if we don't have our own players to bring on.
Rees is a decent player tbf. Doubt there's a young sh that could walk into the first team. Yapp is as useless as Traynor.

The only other signings I'm sure of are Nel, VDW and MacAlpine. The rest I'll reserve judgement on.
I'm quite happy with the squad but am I alone in doubting Ross Ford's ability as captain? On form, he's a fine player, but I just feel he's a bit quiet and lacks the ability to motivate and drive others a la Fin Calder (although he was exceptional).
