Electric Sale winger to be named in Scotland Six Nations squad

Sale Sharks flyer Arron Reed is set to be named in Scotland’s upcoming Guinness Six Nations squad, per a report in The Telegraph.

According to the report, the 24-year-old has been a stand-out performer for the Sharks so far, with five tries in the Premiership.

Born in Chester, the former England U18 and U20 representative has Scottish heritage, which sees him qualify for Gregor Townsend’s squad.

The Telegraph report also mentions that Sale Director of Rugby has said that Townsend has been looking into fellow winger Tom Roebuck and scrumhalf Gus Warr.

Roebuck, like Reed, has been in fine try-scoring form this season, dotting down on five occasions in the Premiership so far, whilst Warr has established himself as the first nine in the squad.

All three players are under the age of 25 and have shown their potential in a high-flying Sharks squad so far this season. Should they all opt to declare for Scotland, it will have a knock-on effect for Sale down the line, given the new England Qualified Players system in 2024.

This system is similar to the one imposed on the French Top 14 sides under the LNR’s JIFF protocols and will regulate how many non-English qualified players can be in a match-day squad.

Townsend is no stranger to recruiting talented young players with Scottish heritage, with former Munster and Ireland U20 flyhalf Ben Healy making the switch ahead of last year’s Championship.

Scotland are scheduled to announce their Six Nations squad on Tuesday January 16th.
