Cape Town - Scotland wing Tommy Seymour has backed his team-mate Huw Jones to rediscover his best form ahead of their Test with Fiji at Murrayfield on Saturday.

There have been calls for Jones to be dropped from Scotland's starting XV after he made some glaring defensive errors in Scotland's 27-10 defeat to Wales in Cardiff last weekend.

But Seymour has defended the centre and is confident he will bounce back.

“We’re isolating Huw more than we should to be honest,” he said.

“We look back at things as a squad and it’s so easy for everyone else to look at it and go with (the missed tackles) because that’s the easy part of it.

“There were failings in and around what happened on the weekend that had nothing to do with him and weren’t his fault, and we need to correct them, to put him in less problematic positions.

“Huw’s played unbelievably well for Scotland, as we all know, and he’s had phenomenal moments to help us win games.

“Huw will bounce back, I have no doubt about it. He’s a talented footballer and any votes of confidence or help he needs, he gets, because we’re all aware of what he brings to the party.

“If any player isn’t happy with something the rest of the squad are going to rally round him.”
