Glasgow Warriors wing Kyle Steyn has joined the Scotland squad ahead of their Six Nations clash against England in London on Saturday.
It was made to work for its 11-18 victory though, with a depleted Scotland side left disappointed not to have made the most of a chaotic second period in which Wales failed to score until the last minute.

Wales fullback Liam Williams also left in the second half, right arm slung in his shirt.
