Scotland have added two uncapped players to their squad for their tour of the southern hemisphere.
With John Barclay struggling with a hand injury sustained in training on Wednesday and Max Evans yet to arrive in Australia due to club commitments with Castres in the Top 14, Andy Robinson has called on Stuart McInally and Alex Dunbar.
Edinburgh's McInally is flying directly into Australia while Glasgow centre Dunbar was handily already in the area visiting relatives.
Scotland face Australia on June 5 - and then Fiji on June 16 and Samoa on June 23 - and Robinson has revealed that Scotland "are still liaising with the IRB, French Federation and Castres to have Max Evans join us as soon as possible."
