Scotland have added five players to their squad ahead of their final Six Nations clash against Italy this weekend.

Scott Cummings, Matt Fagerson, Matt Scott, Adam Hastings and Richie Vernon are all added to a revised squad, while Tommy Seymour is retained despite missing Saturday's defeat in Dublin with a back problem and Alex Dunbar is among those to miss out.

The Glasgow trio of Cummings, Fagerson and Hastings are yet to make their Scotland debuts but have previously been involved in Gregor Townsend's squads and could be involved when the Six Nations comes to an end this week in Rome.
