Vern Cotter has announced his Scotland line up for the match against France on Sunday.

The return of Josh Strauss in the back row and Alex Dunbar’s reinstatement in the midfield are the only changes from the line up against Italy.

It also looks likely the man from the birthplace of sevens rugby, Edinburgh loose head Rory Sutherland will earn his first cap on Sunday.

Also worth mentioning is Sean Lamont, who indicated earlier it might be his last run out at Murrayfield, though he hopes to surpass Chris Paterson’s record of 109 caps for Scotland.

This is the side Scotland will field on Murrayfield on Sunday, hoping to bring down their Auld Ally.

Guy Novès also announced the team that will travel to Edinburgh.

It seems François Trinh-Duc will be starting instead of Jules Plisson, in a bid to make France play a more attacking style of rugby.

France is also boosted by the return of Scott Spedding and Wesley Fofana playing wing, something he has not done for Les Blues for three years.

Here is the French side.
