Kinghorn returns to threaten England defence in Calcutta Cup

Scotland have made three changes to their squad ahead of their third-round match against England in this year’s Six Nations. The match will be held at Murrayfield, as the men in blue aim to rebuild their tournament after the controversial ending with France in the last round.

Blair Kinghorn, Kyle Steyn, and Jamie Ritchie return to the lineup after missing out on the France match in round two.

Kinghorn will make his first appearance of the championship due to a previous injury, adding his sizable 6 ft 4 in frame to the mix.

Steyn, absent last time due to the arrival of his child, slots back into the wing, while Ritchie reclaims his spot in the back row after starting against Wales in the opening weekend.

The rest of the squad remains consistent with the first two matches, as this ‘golden generation’ looks to continue their impressive run of victories over the English.

15. Blair Kinghorn – Toulouse (50)
14. Kyle Steyn – Glasgow Warriors (16)
13. Huw Jones – Glasgow Warriors (45)
12. Sione Tuipulotu – Vice-Captain – Glasgow Warriors (24)
11. Duhan van der Merwe – Edinburgh Rugby (36)

10. Finn Russell – Co-Captain – Bath Rugby (77)
9. Ben White – Toulon (20)
