Gregor Townsend makes five changes for Scotland. Blair Kinghorn comes in for Darcy Graham on the wing, and fit-again Matt Fagerson starts at No 8. In the pack it’s an entirely freshened-up front row: Fraser Brown at hooker, alongside Oli Kebble and Simon Berghan.
For France, fly-half Romain Ntamack misses out with a thigh injury, meaning the 22-year-old Matthieu Jalibert of Bordeaux makes only his second start. Teddy Thomas is back on the wing with Gaël Fickou moving into the centres, and Thomas Ramos returns at full-back with Anthony Bouthier out injured.
