    Scotland makes major changes for next match

    If you thought the five changes from All Blacks coach Steve Hansen for Bledisloe II were extreme, Scotland mentor Gregor Townsend has had a "hold my beer" moment


    Townsend has made 14 changes to the side that was thumped 32-3 by France, for the repeat match in Edinburgh on Saturday.

    Fullback Stuart Hogg is the only player to retain his spot.

    Kiwi-born Blade Thomson will make his international debut.
