Jonny Gray returns for Scotland
Twelve Warriors have been included in Scotland's matchday squad for the Six Nations meeting with Ireland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Jonny Gray has returned from injury to start in the second-row and Ryan Wilson moves from number 8 to the blind-side flank.

Sam Johnson keeps his place in midfield and is once again joined by Huw Jones. Tommy Seymour and Stuart Hogg both keep their place in the back-three.

On the bench, D'arcy Rae will make his international debut should he be called upon.

Fraser Brown has recovered from a knee injury to be involved and Jamie Bhatti makes it an all Warriors front-row among the replacements.

Robert Harley's impressive domestic form has been rewarded with a spot on the bench, his first involvement with the national side since 2017.

Ali Price is once again the scrum-half replacement and Peter Horne has also recovered from injury to be named on the bench.
