EDINBURGH - Scottish rugby chiefs blamed their English counterparts for the failure of England-based players to attend training on Monday, saying they would complain to the International Rugby Board (IRB).

Premier Rugby Limited (PRL) were accused by Scottish Rugby of refusing to release players for what was the national side's first Murrayfield get-together of the new season

Scotland coach Frank Hadden had hoped to avoid this kind of "club v country" row after recently visiting foreign teams with Scotland internationals on their books. Though Hadden appeared to be anticipating problems by naming an unusually large 50-man squad last week

But what seemed a blanket ban appeared to catch officials at Murrayfield by surprise

“We have made formal representation to the IRB, to resolve this matter,” said a spokesman.
