Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has named his squad for the upcoming Six Nations, appointing 72-cap fullback Stuart Hogg as captain.
There are 23 holdovers from the 31-man squad that competed at the World Cup in Japan, with six uncapped players - Glasgow's Tom Gordon, Kyle Steyn, and Ratu Tagive, Edinburgh's Luke Crosbie and Nick Haining, and Gloucester's Alex Craig - hoping to make their first appearance for country.
Townsend's side enter the Six Nations with a point to prove, after they flamed out of the World Cup pool stages following losses to Ireland and hosts Japan.
They begin their account on the road against Ireland, before returning home to face England. They have two massive opportunities to get off on the right foot to kick off the new decade.
