Scotland call up uncapped trio for 2018 Autumn Tests
Blade Thomson, Sam Skinner and Sam Johnson are in line for their first caps.
Gregor Townsend has named his Scotland squad for the 2018 Autumn Tests, with three uncapped players called up.
Scarlets forward Blade Thomson, Exeter Chiefs second row Sam Skinner and Glasgow Warriors centre Sam Johnson are in contention for their first caps.
Thomson, who hails from New Zealand, qualifies to play for Scotland through his Scottish grandparents.
The 27-year-old was capped by the All Blacks as a youth player but hasn't played for the senior side and has now opted to try his hand with the Scots.
England U20 cap Skinner is eligible as his dad hails from Ayr.
Johnson, Warriors' Players' Player of the Year in 2017, is from Australia but qualified on residency grounds for a switch in July and has now been drafted in by Townsend.
The Scots travel to Cardiff to face Wales on November 3, before hosting Fiji, South Africa and Argentina at Murrayfield as they look to build on a hat-trick of impressive displays across last Autumn's matches.
In 2017, Townsend's team thrashed Samoa, ran the All Blacks close and defeated Australia.
On the call-ups, the Scotland head coach said: "We had a productive summer tour in which a number of players made their first outing for their country.
"A lot of those players have continued to perform well for their clubs and have merited re-selection in a strong group.
"We also welcome Blade and both Sams into the squad. We are looking forward to working with them and getting our squad back together for the first time since the summer.
