Edinburgh scrum-half Henry Pyrgos has been called up to replace injured Ali Price in Scotland’s Rugby World Cup.

Price, 26, suffered a foot injury in Sunday’s Pool A defeat to Ireland and has been ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.

The Glasgow Warriors No.9 was spotted on crutches as the team moved to Kobe in Japan, where they face Samoa on Monday.

Pyrgos, who will now make his second appearance at a World Cup, is hoping to add to his 27 international caps having last played in Scotland’s win over Australia in 2017.

On Monday, Scotland called up Pyrgos’ club team-mate Magnus Bradbury to replace flanker Hamish Watson after he was ruled out with a serious knee injury also suffered in the 27-3 defeat to Ireland.
