Gregor Townsend has restored Blair Kinghorn to fullback and Kyle Steyn to the wing. There’s also a return for Jamie Ritchie in the backrow at the expense of Matt Fagerson, which suggests the Scottish coach wants a bit more ability over the ball at the ruck over carrying heft.

For England, George Furbank is a surprising selection ahead of Freddie Steward at 15. The Leicester man was man of the match v Wales, but Borthwick clearly wants a bit more mobility and handling from his fullback this week, and so have given the Northampton player the nod. Ollie Lawrence returns from injury to continue his promising international form of 2023 at inside centre, while Alex Mitchell’s injury brings Danny Care in as starting scrum-half.

SCOTLAND Blair Kinghorn; Kyle Steyn, Huw Jones, Sione Tuipulotu, Duhan van der Merwe; Finn Russell (co-capt), Ben White; Pierre Schoeman, George Turner, Zander Fagerson, Grant Gilchrist, Scott Cummings, Jamie Ritchie, Rory Darge (co-capt), Jack Dempsey.

Replacements 16 Ewan Ashman, 17 Alec Hepburn, 18 Elliot Millar-Mills, 19 Sam Skinner, 20 Andy Christie, 21 George Horne, 22 Ben Healy, 23 Cameron Redpath.

George Furbank, Tommy Freeman, Henry Slade, Ollie Lawrence, and Elliot Daly make up the England team lineup. In addition, George Ford and Danny Care are the team’s scrum-half and fly-half, respectively. The front row consists of Ellis Genge, Jamie George, and Dan Cole, while Maro Itoje, Ollie Chessum, Ethan Roots, Sam Underhill, and Ben Earl make up the rest of the team.

16 Theo Dan, 17 Joe Marler, 18 Will Stuart, 19 George Martin, 20 Chandler Cunningham-South, 21 Ben Spencer, 22 Fin Smith, 23 Immanuel Feyi-Waboso.

Uncertainty and concern fill the world, with each passing day bringing more questions. When will my energy bill stop being equivalent to Luxembourg’s GDP? What’s the reason behind the popularity of bubble tea? Who qualifies as a Love Island All Star? Is Danny Care being honest about his age?

During this unpredictable period, there is one certainty: Scotland will defeat England. With four consecutive victories for Gregor Townsend’s team and a strong squad, combined with England’s lackluster performance in the tournament so far, Scottish supporters can be at ease and look forward to their early evening entertainment.

Reworded: However, that is not the typical behavior of those supporters or the team they endorse. Despite easily winning two games, Scotland finds themselves in second place behind today’s rivals due to a narrow victory and a loss. This inexplicable difficulty in meeting expectations may cause fans to feel anxious as they make their way down Haymarket Terrace.

England is not expected to perform as well, as there is a lot of talk about the opposing team being favored. This could lead to a relaxed attitude that enables the highly praised, yet unseen, Borthwick strategy to come forth during the early part of spring.

This is sure to be an exciting match. Scotland is aiming to prove themselves as the second best team in Europe based on their current performance; meanwhile, England is determined to break their losing streak against their traditional rivals.

Kick-off: 4.45pm GMT.
