Italy call-up Scotland U-20 fly-half
October 9, 2013
Italy have called up Scotland Under-20 fly-half Tommy Allan in their 35-man squad for the November Tests.
Allan has played just one match for club side Perpignan and previously lined up in Wasps' academy. Allan, who was born in Vicenza, has turned out for Scotland's age-group team but has seemingly committed his future to Italy.
He is one of three uncapped players in the squad named by Jacques Brunel with Ruggero Trevisan and Michele Campagnaro the other two. Italy host Australia in Turin on November 9, Fiji in Cremona on November 16 and then play Argentina at the Olympic Stadium in Rome a week later.
