Richie Vernon seeks Scotland World Cup call

Scotland's Richie Vernon says he will go all out to impress against Italy for a coveted World Cup spot.

Sale Sharks flanker Richie Vernon has said that he is determined to get into Scotland’s World Cup squad by impressing in the EMC Test at Murrayfield on Saturday.

The 24-year-old, who will discover if he has been called up on Monday, stressed that he will play to the best of his ability to secure a place in the squad.

"I'll be looking to get my hands on the ball, try and be as dangerous as I can, hopefully break some tackles and get through a few gaps," Vernon is quoted as saying.

"If I can do that hopefully it will put me forward for a place on that plane."

Scotland Team to face Italy: R Lamont; M Evans, N De Luca, G Morrison, S Danielli, D Parks, M Blair; A Dickinson, S Lawson, M Low, N Hines, A Kellock (captain), K Brown, R Vernon, J Barclay.
