Ryan Grant Called Up to Lions Squad

Scotland Prop Ryan Grant has been called up by the British & Irish Lions as cover for Gethin Jenkins following his failed fitness test on Friday ahead of the match against the Queensland Reds.

Cian Healy has left the Lions tour after results of his scan confirmed the ankle ligament damage sustained in the match against the Western Force on Wednesday.  Alex Corbisiero had already been called up as cover, but the Lions have also now added Grant to the roster.

Gethin Jenkins ha dropped out of the team to face Queensland Reds tomorrow with Mako Vunipola stepping up from the bench to the starting position.  Dan Cole takes Vunipola’s place on the bench.

Glasgow Warriors Ryan Grant had been on tour with Scotland in Durban in South Africa, but will now travel to Brisbane to meet up with the Lions squad.  There had been some disappointment in the Scotland camp that Grant had not been selected originally, but the prop will now get his chance on the tour.
