Scotland Forced Into Squad Change Ahead Of Six Nations Clash With France

Scotland‘s Rugby Union team is facing an unexpected change in their squad as they prepare to take on France in the Six Nations tournament. Winger Kyle Steyn, originally in the starting lineup, has had to withdraw due to personal reasons, with Harry Paterson stepping in to make his Test debut.

With Paterson taking up the full-back position, Kyle Rowe has been shifted to fill the void left on the right wing. The rest of the starting lineup remains unchanged for the crucial match at Murrayfield.

The back three will feature Duhan van der Merwe, Kyle Rowe, and Paterson, while the centre pairing comprises Huw Jones and Sione Tuipulotu. Finn Russell, co-captain, will lead from the fly-half position with Ben White at scrum-half.

Jack Dempsey, Rory Darge, and Matt Fagerson will make up the loose forwards, while Grant Gilchrist and Scott Cummings are the starting locks. In the front row, Pierre Schoeman, George Turner, and Zander Fagerson complete the lineup.

The replacements on the bench include Ewan Ashman, Alec Hepburn, Elliot Millar-Mills, Sam Skinner, and Andy Christie in the forward positions. The backline replacements are George Horne, Ben Healy, and Cameron Redpath.

The match is scheduled for Saturday at Murrayfield, with Nic Berry officiating. Both teams are gearing up for a fiercely contested battle on the rugby field in this prestigious competition.
