Castleford's exciting teenage hooker Daryl Clark is among a host of new faces named in Scotland's squad for the forthcoming matches with Ireland and France.
Clark, who burst onto the Super League scene in spectacular fashion this year, is one of 16 uncapped players named in Steve McCormack's 28-man squad.
The newcomers include Clark's 18-year-old team-mate Ben Blackmore, Wakefield's Oxford-born centre Josh Griffin, Josh Barlow of Halifax and Swinton's former England Under-16s rugby union full-back Alex Hurst.
The squad provides further evidence of the work done by Scotland Rugby League's development team, with nine of the players having represented Scotland A and eight having donned the shirt for Scotland Students.
The squad will go into camp at Heriot-Watt University the week before playing Ireland at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow on Sunday, October 16.
Scotland squad: Dave Arnot (London Skolars), Josh Barlow, Sam Barlow (both Halifax), Ben Blackmore, Daryl Clark, Paul Jackson (Castleford), Nick Broere, Paddy Coupar, Callum Cockburn, Giles Lomax (Edinburgh Eagles), Brett Carter (Workington), John Duffy (Leigh), Josh Griffin (Wakefield), Alex Szostak, Mitch Stringer, Andrew Henderson, Jack Howieson (Sheffield Eagles), Alex Hurst, Lee Paterson (Swinton), Neil Lowe (Hunslet), Chad McGlame, Crawford Matthews (Hull), Brad Massey (Coventry), Gareth Moore (Wakefield), Jordan Rice, Jack Stearman (York), David Scott (Hull KR), Mike Stewart (Lincoln City).
