FORMER Dunfermline Rugby Club star Murray McCallum has been called-up for a two-day Scotland training camp this week.

The 25-year-old, who came through the ranks at McKane Park before going on to play for Heriot's and Edinburgh Rugby, is one of 18 Glasgow Warriors players in the 36-man pool assembled by head coach Gregor Townsend.

The squad, which features predominantly home-based players, will gather at Oriam, in Edinburgh, ahead of the national side's upcoming Autumn Nations Series.

McCallum, who moved to Glasgow on a short-term deal in the summer, has played three times for Scotland since making his debut, as a substitute, in a Six Nations match against Wales, in Cardiff, on February 28.

In the Autumn Nations Series, Scotland take on Tonga, on October 30; Australia, on November 7; South Africa, on November 13; and Japan, on November 20, at BT Murrayfield.

Meanwhile, McCallum's boyhood club returned to winning ways in Tennent's Caledonia Region League Division One last Saturday with victory over Ellon at McKane, and followed it up with victory at Grangemouth Stags at the weekend.

After a 22-3 win over Ellon, the first XV secured a hard-fought 31-26 win at Grangemouth.

We'll have more details in this week's Press Sport.
