McI­nally back for Scot­land

The Rugby Paper - - Internationals -

SCOT­LAND tour cap­tain Stu­art McI­nally re­cov­ered from in­jury to start in their fi­nal tour game against Ar­gentina last night.

The Ed­in­burgh hooker missed the win over Canada and de­feat by United States with a calf strain.

His re­turn was one of eight changes made by coach Gre­gor Townsend to the side beaten 30-29 in Hous­ton. Tim Swin­son was the only for­ward to be re­tained, with Al­lan Dell and Simon Berghan coming in to form an all-new front row along­side McI­nally.

Fraser Brown, a hooker by trade, started his first Test at open­side. The only back­line change saw Dougie Fife re­place By­ron McGuigan on the wing. SCOT­LAND: Hogg, Fife, Grigg, P Horne, Kinghorn, Hast­ings, G Horne, Dell, McI­nally (c), Berghan, Swin­son, Gilchrist, Brad­bury, Brown, Den­ton Re­place­ments: Turner, Bhatti, Z Fager­son, Too­lis, Ritchie, Hi­dalgo-Clyne, Lang, Har­ris
