Paterson gets nod for Les Bleus
SCOTLAND’S record points scorer Chris Paterson has been recalled as one of six changes for his side’s Six Nations clash with France on Sunday.
Paterson will win his 99th cap as a full-back replacement for the injured Rory Lamont, joining Glasgow centres Max Evans and Graeme Morrison in a new-look back division.
Gloucester prop Alasdair Dickinson also returns, while Glasgow flankers Kelly Brown and John Barclay are called up in place of Alasdair Strokosch and Alan MacDonald.
On picking his first Six Nations side, coach Andy Robinson said: “There has been improved competition for places since the autumn Tests and selection has been based both on achievements within the autumn matches and on current form.”
