Jack Dempsey makes his first start for Scotland
Glasgow's Jack Dempsey will make his first start for Scotland in this weekend's Autumn Nations Series match against Argentina at Murray field.

Dempsey has featured off the bench in all three of Scotland's Autumn Nations Series matches, making his debut against the nation of his birth, Australia, in round one.

Nine Warriors are named in Gregor Townsend's squad for the weekend.

Fraser Brown retains his place in the starting XV at hooker and is joined in the front three by Zander Fagerson.

In the back row Matt Fagerson moves from number 8 to open-side flanker to make way for Dempsey.

Ali Price is at scrum-half and is joined by Sione Tuipulotu who lines up at inside centre.

Rounding out the Glasgow contingent in the squad, is an all Glasgow Warriors front row with George Turner, Jamie Bhatti and Murphy Walker all named on the bench.
