Scotland team to take on France

Fraser Brown will play his 50th cap
Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend has named eight Glasgow Warriors in his squad ahead of this weekend's clash against undefeated France at Murrayfield.

There will be two milestones for Warriors players on Sunday afternoon. Starting hooker Fraser Brown will earn his 50th cap for his country, with fellow clubman Kyle Steyn in line to make his debut off the bench.

Six Warriors are named in the starting XV, as Scotland look to build on their 0-17 win away to Italy in round three of the Guinness Six Nations.

Zander Fagerson continues at tight-head and is joined by the soon to be half-centurion and Vice-Captain Fraser Brown in the front-row.

Scott Cummings retains his place in the second-row, having started in every match of this year's Six Nations.

Behind the scrum, Townsend has named an unchanged backline for the clash with Ali Price and, try-scorer against Italy, Adam Hastings linking up at nine and ten. Sam Johnson is named as inside centre.

The Glasgow contingent is completed with scrum-half George Horne and potential debutant Kyle Steyn on the bench.
