Scots push panic button
14 Jun 2006
Scotland have made six changes for the second Test against the Springboks in PE on Saturday.
The injured Sean Lamont is replaced by Simon Webster on the wing, while captain Jason White is fit and takes his place in the back row. Gordon Ross replaces Dan Parks at flyhalf.
Scott Lawson, Bruce Douglas, Scott Murray and Donnie Macfadyen drop out for Dougie Hall, Craig Smith, Alastair Kellock and Jon Petrie in the pack.
“Our first priority is to win the Test match this weekend and there are also things we need to look at from the World Cup perspective, such as the blend of the side and what individuals can do,” said Scotland coach Frank Hadden. “Last week’s group had the opportunity to do something special. Now that chance falls to the team for this week.”
Scotland: Hugo Southwell; Chris Paterson, Marcus Di Rollo, Andrew Henderson, Simon Webster; Gordon Ross, Mike Blair; Gavin Kerr, Dougie Hall, Craig Smith, Nathan Hines, Alastair Kellock, Jason White, Allister Hogg, Jon Petrie.
Replacements: Scott Lawson, Bruce Douglas, Scott MacLeod, Kelly Brown, Donnie Macfadyen, Sam Pinder, Ben MacDougall.
