Edinburgh - Scotland have named 10 uncapped players in a 35-man training squad ahead of the Six Nations Championship in February and March.

Injured internationals Chris Cusiter, Nick De Luca, John Barclay, Ross Rennie, Scott Lawson and Jon Welsh were invited to join the squad as they recover from injuries while forward Alasdair Strokosch will miss the January 20-23 camp with his wife expecting their second child.

"This squad is for our training camp in Glasgow next week and we still have the option to add to it for the Six Nations," interim coach Scott Johnson said on the Scottish Rugby website (www.scotlandrugby.org) on Monday.

Scotland, who finished bottom last year, begin their Six Nations campaign away against England on February 2.
