Moray Low
Moray Low has started seven games for Exeter in all competitions since moving from Glasgow in the summer

Exeter prop Moray Low will gain "plenty more Scotland caps", according to the club's head coach Rob Baxter.

Low, 30, has been named in his first call-up since

Low has won 29 Scotland caps, but has not featured since coming on last June.

"He's very diligent in what he does, and has real ambition in the game, so I'm sure he'll gain plenty more Scotland caps," Baxter told BBC Sport.

Low did not start in the Premiership for Exeter until the and has started three more times in the league since then.

"I don't think he had the easiest of starts and it was a little bit sticky for a while," Baxter said.

"But if you think of how he played against Saracens here, where he looked the dominant prop on the pitch, there's a lot coming from him.

"He's been a little bit unfortunate picking up the ankle injury when he did, when he was on form and doing things for us. That's hampered him getting ready for the Six Nations, but I have no doubt over the next year and a half that he's with us you'll see a steady improvement from him.

"Moray took a big decision to leave Scotland. He was in and around the Scotland set up, played well through their autumn international series, then took the decision to leave Scotland and challenge himself in a different environment and I think he's getting better and better."
