Scotland Team to Face All Blacks

Hugo makes starting 15, Webbo called up to bench

With six players in the starting line-up and another six on the bench, the Gunners once again provide the core of the Scotland team. There are four changes, one positional, for Saturday's Test from the starting line-up in last Sunday's victory against Samoa.

Rory Lamont has been ruled out through the head knock he sustained against Samoa thus Chris Paterson moves from full-back to wing and Hugo Southwell is introduced in the No 15 jersey.

In the front-row Gavin Kerr and Bruce Douglas are rewarded for their scrummaging against Argentina by winning the nod at loose-head and tight-head respectively.

On the bench winger Simon Webster is involved for the first time this autumn series.
