Gregor Townsend has made eight changes to Scotland’s starting lineup for Saturday’s clash against Argentina at Murrayfield.
In the backline, Adam Hastings starts at flyhalf, with Finn Russell shifting from No 10 to inside centre. Blair Kinghorn will play on the left wing in place of Sean Maitland, who moves to 14.
Up front, openside flank Hamish Watson is the only survivor from last week’s starting loose trio. He is joined by No 8 Josh Strauss and blindside flank Jamie Ritchie in the back row.
Grant Gilchrist has cracked the nod at No 4 for the upcoming Test, while Townsend also opted for an all-new front row consisting of Simon Berghan, Fraser Brown and Allan Dell.
Scrumhalf George Horne, centre Alex Dunbar and utility back Byron McGuigan are the other new inclusions in the match 23.
