Scotland have made just one forced change to their 23-man Six Nations squad following their home defeat to England last weekend.

Duncan Taylor will now replace Matt Scott in the starting line-up after the latter injured a quadricep during training, meaning Sean Lamont will come into the vacant bench slot.

All three Border region players in the 23-man squad, Greig Laidlaw, Stuart Hogg and Ross Ford, played huge roles in the opening game, but still fell short against a newly resurgent England.

Alex Dunbar, from Dumfries, has again missed out on selection this week.
