WASPS duo Ruaridh Jackson and Bradley Davies have both been included by Scotland and Wales respectively for the upcoming RBS 6 Nations.

Scotland head coach Vern Cotter named Jackson in his 35-man Scotland squad and Davies was selected for Warren Gatland’s 37-man team,  which includes 31 players who featured for Wales in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Four Wasps players were also named in England’s squad with James Haskell, Joe Launchbury, Matt Mullan and Elliot Daly all getting the nod from new England boss Eddie Jones.

England’s 33 man squad will meet at Pennyhill Park this Sunday (January 24) to prepare for their opening match against Scotland in Edinburgh on February 6, while Wales kick-off their campaign away at reigning champions Ireland the following day.
