Blair Kinghorn, the Edinburgh back will make his first Scotland start in place of injured Lions winger Tommy Seymour when on Saturday, Gregor Townsend’s side face Ireland in Dublin in the Six Nations.
Seymour’s failure to recover from a back injury led to the only change to the side that defeated England 25-13. In the win over England, the 21-year-old will made his debut as a replacement.
Lee Jones and Fraser Brown, replaces the injured Scott Lawson, are named on the bench. Both winger Jones and hooker Brown have recovered from head knocks.
Townsend, said: “We were delighted with the result against England and backing up our win against France with an improved performance. The intent we showed in attack and defence in the first half was very encouraging and we continued to work hard in the second-half.
“The effort that went into denying England a second try in the closing minutes was great to see. Our players had prepared very well for the challenge of taking on England and there has been a similar focus and commitment this week at training.
“There are a few areas of our game that we are working to improve and we are aware that we will have to be better if we are to beat a very good Ireland side in Dublin.”
