|20-19 Six Nations: Scotland v Ireland|
|Venue: Murrayfield Date: Saturday, 9 February Kick-off: 14:15 GMT|
Even though scoring a hat-trick of tries at the win over Italy, blair Kinghorn was overlooked of the Scotland team to face Ireland in their second Six Nations match on Saturday.
Saracens wing Sean Maitland replaces after dealing with trauma, the Edinburgh youngster, who’s on the bench.
Other changes see Simon Berghan replace the WP Nel and lock Jonny grey replace Ben Toolis.
Josh Strauss starts at number eight, with Ryan Wilson moving to blind-side.
Sam Skinner was inaccessible after suffering an ankle injury that forced him against Italy, so Strauss and Wilson stay in the places they finished against Italy.
Changes to the bench see experienced hooker Fraser Brown come back from 2 months on the sidelines, carrying over from Jake Kerr, who left his debut.
D’arcy Rae comes in tight-head cover with Berghan promoted to the starting team, and Rob Harley replaces Gary Graham as the possibility.
Pete Horne takes over as pay together with Chris Harris at middle and Flyhalf later coming on dropping out of their match-day 2-3 from Adam Hastings.
