Laidlaw back for Scotland

Saturday, February 10, 2018

Greig Laidlaw will return to Scotland's starting lineup for Monday's Six Nations tie against France after coach Gregor Townsend made six changes to the side thrashed by Wales last week.

Townsend made three changes in the pack and three in the backline for the clash at Murrayfield after a meek performance in Cardiff, where Scotland were beaten 34-7 in their first game of this year's competition.

British and Irish Lion Laidlaw, who suffered a leg fracture in October, will make his first start since the corresponding fixture in Paris last March, having been on the bench last week.

He reunites with flyhalf Finn Russell in a potentially exciting partnership.
