Three players from the Border region have been selected to play for Scotland in their Six Nations clash against Wales this Saturday.

Stuart Hogg, who was born in Melrose but played for Hawick, is currently the in-form fullback of the tournament and a favourite for Lions selection.

Alex Dunbar, from Dumfries, starts in the centres while former Kelso High School pupil Ross Ford starts the game on the bench.
