Squad for the Autumn internationals has been announced:

Backs – Joe Ansbro (Northampton Saints), Mike Blair (Edinburgh), Ben Cairns (Edinburgh), Max Evans (Glasgow Warriors), Alex Grove (Edinburgh), Ruaridh Jackson (Glasgow Warriors), Greig Laidlaw (Edinburgh), Rory Lamont (Toulon), Sean Lamont (Scarlets), Rory Lawson (Gloucester), Graeme Morrison (Glasgow Warriors), Dan Parks (Cardiff Blues), Chris Paterson (Edinburgh), Hugo Southwell (Stade Francais), James Thompson (Edinburgh), Nikki Walker (Ospreys)
Forwards – John Barclay (Glasgow Warriors), Kelly Brown (Saracens), Geoff Cross (Edinburgh), Alasdair Dickinson (Gloucester), Ross Ford (Edinburgh), Richie Gray (Glasgow Warriors), Dougie Hall (Glasgow Warriors), Jim Hamilton (Gloucester), Nathan Hines (Leinster), Allan Jacobsen (Edinburgh), Scott Lawson (Gloucester), Moray Low (Glasgow Warriors), Alan MacDonald (Edinburgh), Scott MacLeod (Edinburgh), Euan Murray (Northampton Saints), Ross Rennie (Edinburgh), Alasdair Strokosch (Gloucester) and Richie Vernon (Glasgow Warriors).
Not considered due to injury – Johnnie Beattie (Glasgow Warriors), Chris Cusiter (Glasgow Warriors), Simon Danielli (Ulster), Nick De Luca (Edinburgh), Phil Godman (Edinburgh) and Alastair Kellock (Glasgow Warriors)

What are your surprise inclusions/exclusions?

I thought David blair and Duncan Weir might have been included to train with the squad as this constitutes the A squad too (or at least players can drop down to it).

What would your starting XV be for the New Zealand game on the 13th?

i think mine would be:

1. Dickinson
2. Ford
3. Murray
4. Hines
5. MacLeoad/Gray
6. Strockosh
7. Barclay
8. Brown
9. Lawson
10. Parks
11. S. Lamont
12. Morrison
13. Evans
14. Walker
15. R. Lamont

I would play jackson at 10, get him in now for development for WC. We know what Parks can do. Even if they palyed him at 15 to get him involved with a bit less pressure.

Id play Jackson as well, we need to look at the bigger picture, as barry says the WC has to be targeted.

My back row would be Barclay Brown and Vernon.
Hopefully we continue the good form shown in Argentina as well, we should pump the all blacks.

is putting him up against the best 7 in the world really a good idea for his international debut?! I was going to have him in my team, but with the first game being the all blacks, i'd bring him off the bench.

Jackson isnae playing in the back row though Niall - so i'd not be too worried about that.
