Two Leicester Tigers players will feature in Scotland's opening game of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations.

Leah Bartlett is set to start the match at loosehead prop, while Elis Martin will look to make an impact from the bench, being named amonst the replacements.

Both players have been ever-presents for Tigers having signed for the club over the summer, making 12 and 11 appearances respectively; Martin has scored three tries across her debut campaign while Bartlett scored the winner in the side's first ever Premiership victory, away at Sale Sharks.

Scotland get their campaign underway this weekend, when they travel to Cardiff to battle Wales, looking to avenge last year's 22 - 34 defeat in Edinburgh.

The match is set to take place at Cardiff Arms Park this Saturday, March 23 (kick off: 4.45pm) and can be watched live on BBC 2 and iPlayer.
