Scotland and South Africa make two changes each for Test
Tighthead prop Euan Murray returns as one of two changes for Scotland in the Test with South Africa at Murrayfield on Saturday.
Murray, who missed Sunday’s 51-22 loss to New Zealand for religious reasons, replaces Geoff Cross in the starting XV.
The second change is enforced, with Ross Rennie (dislocated shoulder) replaced by David Denton. Denton’s inclusion at number eight means captain Kelly Brown will switch to openside flanker.
South Africa have recalled prop Gurthro Steenkamp and centre Juan de Jongh in making two changes.
Steenkamp replaces CJ van der Linde at loosehead after the latter took over as a late replacement from Tendai Mtawarira in the 16-12 win over Ireland.
De Jongh replaces Jaco Taute at outside centre. Both Van der Linde and Taute have been included on the bench.
Steenkamp has not played for South Africa for more than a year.
“It’s great to have Gurthro back – we wanted to select him last week but unfortunately he was not 100 per cent fit,” said coach Heyneke Meyer.
