Kinghorn to start against Ireland

Blair Kinghorn will start for Scotland at fly-half against Ireland, as one of seven Edinburgh Rugby stars selected in the 23-man squad for the final round of the Guinness Six Nations.

Kinghorn has been in impressive form at stand-off for the capital, and is given the 10 jersey for the second time in his international career - having helped guide Scotland to a 60-14 win against Tonga in the Autumn Nations Cup last time out.

Darcy Graham has been in sizzling mood all Six Nations, and will once again start on the right wing.

Pierre Schoeman packs down at loosehead, and will be joined in the tight five by vice-captain Grant Gilchrist. The forwards are rounded out by Hamish Watson, who retains his place at openside flanker.

WP Nel will again play a role from the replacements, as will Mark Bennett.
