Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has recalled two Edinburgh Rugby players and two Glasgow Warriors for the Six Nations Championship game against France in Paris on Saturday.
The Edinburgh pair are full-back Blair Kinghorn and back-row forward Magnus Bradbury, while the Warriors are fly-half Peter Horne and centre Nick Grigg.
Kinghorn, 22 – who has scored two tries in six Heineken Champions Cup appearances this season – replaces Glasgow Warriors’ Stuart Hogg, who has a shoulder injury.
Kinghorn – the first Scot to notch a hat-trick of tries in the Six Nations, against Italy earlier this month – helped Edinburgh top Pool 5 and earn a home quarter-final against Munster Rugby on March 30 at BT Murrayfield, live on Channel 4, BT Sport and beIN SPORTS.
