Glasgow flanker Rob Harley has been called up to the injury-ravaged Scotland squad in South Africa.

Harley has been drafted in as a replacement for Ryan Wilson, who dislocated his shoulder in the defeat to South Africa on Saturday. Wilson's departure followed that of fellow back-row and captain Kelly Brown who suffered a tour-ending injury in their opening loss to Samoa.

Harley, who made his first Test start in the 34-10 win over the Italians in February, said: "It's a bit of a shock but very exciting. I've never been out to South Africa before so it'll be good to go over there and hopefully I'll be able to make the squad for the game on Saturday. I know a little about Italy but I'm sure it'll be a different game over in South Africa with different conditions."

Lock Jim Hamilton has also been released from the squad so that he can be with his wife, Rebecca, who is due to give birth to their second child on Thursday.
