WARRIORS' back-row forward Cornell du Preez has received a Scotland call-up for this weekend's Six Nations fixture with France on Sunday.

The Worcester number.8 has been left out for this year's tournament so far and most of last autumn's November series but is one of seven players added to the squad.

Du Preez was in the squad throughout the Autumn Nations Cup but didn't ever make it into a match day 23.

He will therefore miss Warriors' clash with Gloucester Rugby this Saturday.
