Scotland have named their squad to play Canada as they look to bounce back from their 38-0 Autumn Test defeat in Italy earlier this month.

Shade Munro's Scots will once again be captained again by Darlington Mowden Park's Lisa Thomson, with Jade Konkel - who plays for the Premier 15s side Harlequins - also returning.

Watsonians Charlotte Runcie will be vying for her first cap at Scotstoun.

"There are a host of new and experienced players," said Munro.

"The squad have worked really hard over the last few weeks and we hope that the crowd will back us on the pitch and bring the atmosphere that Scotstoun is famous for."
