Scotland and British and Irish Lions back-row forward Simon Taylor makes a welcome return for the Gunners this week. Head Coach Frank Hadden said: "We are delighted to announce that Simon is back in action and we expect his inclusion to give everyone in Scottish rugby a lift.

"It has been a tough 18 months for Simon but it is fantastic to see him fit and raring to go. Everyone who has any interest in the game in Scotland must be pleased to see him back on the field," he added.

Hadden has made five changes to the side that lost 30-23 to Ulster at Ravenhill a week ago. As well as the inclusion of Taylor, international full back Hugo Southwell makes his first start in the Celtic League this season as does prop Alasdair Dickinson. Internationalists Phil Godman and Allan Jacobsen return to the side at stand-off and loosehead prop respectively.
