Scotland will be without the services of backline duo Adam Hastings and Huw Jones when they go on their tour to South America later this month after they were sidelined with injuries.

Gloucester fly-half Hastings has withdrawn from Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend’s squad after sustaining a hamstring problem.

Harlequins utility back Jones, who is set to return to his former club Glasgow Warriors, will miss the tour with a back complaint.

Meanwhile, Glasgow hooker Jonny Matthews, who is uncapped at Test level, has been called up for the trip which kicks off with Scotland A participating in a competitive match against Chile in Santiago on June 25. Scotland will then take on Argentina in three Tests in July.
