LONDON, 17 Oct - Prop Rory Sutherland has been drafted into the Scotland squad for Rugby World Cup 2015 as an injury replacement for Ryan Grant.

Grant, 30, sustained a hamstring injury in training earlier in the week and, with the recovery period expected to extend beyond the competition, has been replaced by uncapped 23-year-old Sutherland (pictured above).

Sutherland – who was set to start for his club Edinburgh Rugby against Ulster in the Guinness PRO12 on Friday night – instead flew to London to link up with coach Vern Cotter's squad ahead of Sunday’s 16:00 quarter-final against Australia at Twickenham.
