Blair Kinghorn, who will be hoping to help Edinburgh Rugby qualify for the EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 next month, has been recalled to the Scotland side at fly-half on Saturday, when they travel to Ireland for their final 2022 Six Nations game.
The 25-year-old has featured in two of Edinburgh’s three Pool C games and the Scottish region head into Round 5 with a strong chance of reaching the knockout stage after picking up 10 points.
Four of Kinghorn’s club-mates have retained their places in the Scotland team following last weekend’s 33-22 win against Italy in Rome, with prop Pierre Schoeman, lock Grant Gilchrist, flanker Hamish Watson and wing Darcy Graham all starting again.

Glasgow Warriors, who drop into the EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 following their demotion from the Heineken Champions Cup, have seven representatives in the XV.
Hooker George Turner, prop Zander Fagerson, No.8 Matt Fagerson, flanker Rory Darge, scrum-half Ali Price, wing Kyle Steyn and centre Sam Johnson all keep their starting berths.
Centre Chris Harris, whose Gloucester Rugby side have sealed their qualification for the knockout stage through Pool B with a game to spare, also starts.
