London - Glasgow hooker Kevin Bryce has replaced Stuart McInally in Scotland's World Cup squad, the Scottish Rugby Union announced on Monday.

Bryce, 27, who has two caps, was given the surprise news after 25-year-old McInally failed to recover from a neck injury.

Bryce, who was also a late call-up to Scotland's provisional training squad, said: "It was quite a shock and it's not quite sunk in yet."

Scotland open their World Cup campaign against Japan on September 23 in Gloucester.
