Worcester Warriors' Scotland duo of prop Rory Sutherland and winger Duhan van der Merwe have both been included in the squad for the 2022 Six Nations.

The British and Irish Lions pair have both been in the national fold for the last year but Sutherland did miss the Autumn nations Series through injury.

Van der Merwe has been in sparkling form for Warriors so far this season and was also impressive for his country in the autumn.

The squad will meet up at Oriam on Monday 24 January for a training camp before reconvening the following week ahead of the Calcutta Cup clash.

What Worcester games will the pair miss?

The one downside of having internationals is that you do lose them for certain periods during the season.

Worcester play seven games during the Six Nations, with six of those being in the Gallagher Premiership.

Those games are: 

  • Leicester Tigers (A) - Saturday 5 February 
  • Sale Sharks (A) - Saturday 12 February 
  • Bristol Bears (H) - Friday 18 February 
  • Harlequins (H) - Friday 25 February 
  • London Irish (A) - Saturday 5 March 
  • Exeter Chiefs (H) - Sat 12 March 
  • Exeter Chiefs (A, Cup) - Friday 18 March 

There are fallow weeks either side of round three fixtures meaning the Worcester pair, given they are fit, would be available to play on February 18 at home to Bristol Bears and away at London Irish on March 5.
