Scotland forwards Tim Swinson and Fraser Brown have been called in to replace suspended duo Ross Ford and Jonny Gray for Sunday's World Cup quarter-final with Australia at Twickenham.

Ford and Gray were hit with a three-week ban after their illegal two-man tip tackle on Samoa's Jack Lam.

The Scots have appealed the decision but only lodged the papers on Friday morning and are still waiting to be given a time slot for their hearing by World Rugby chiefs.

There is still a chance it could take place on Saturday but with no precedent for a complete reversal of a suspension Vern Cotter has gone ahead and planned for their absence.
