Luke Hamilton is set to make his Scotland debut after being named in their squad to face New Zealand on Saturday.

Leicester Tigers back rower Hamilton is selected on the bench for the game against the All Blacks at Murrayfield. Kick-off is at 5.15pm and the game is live on BBC TV and BT Sport.

Head Coach, Gregor Townsend, said: “The players are looking forward to getting back out on the pitch after last weekend’s high-scoring match against Samoa, which highlighted a few areas we’ve sought to improve this week at training.

“The task of facing New Zealand is one of the biggest challenges in sport and one that our players relish. They have been in brilliant form this season and continue to set very high standards whenever they play.”
