NEWS | Seven Edinburgh players selected for All Blacks clash

Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend has named seven Edinburgh players in his squad to face New Zealand this weekend at BT Murrayfield (Saturday 18 November, kick-off 5.15pm).

In the front-row, Darryl Marfo once again starts at loosehead prop following his impressive international debut last weekend. Stuart McInally, who only yesterday signed a two-year extension with the club, features at hooker after his two-try, man-of-the-match earning performance against Samoa.

Ben Toolis continues to impress at lock and will earn his 6th cap for Scotland. In the back-row, the experienced duo of Hamish Watson and Cornell du Preez provide Gregor Townsend with a reliable one-two punch in both attack and defence.

Simon Berghan and Grant Gilchrist take their place amongst the replacements and, if involved, the pair will earn their 4th and 16th caps respectively.
