Glasgow Warriors teenage full-back Stuart Hogg will make his first start for Scotland in Sunday's Six Nations Nations Championship match against France at Murrayfield.
Hogg, a product of the Hawick club, will be joined by his Warriors' team-mates, centre Graeme Morrison and flanker John Barclay in the starting line-up, while a fourth change in personnel from the team that lost against Wales earlier this month sees Edinburgh Rugby's Mike Blair preferred to his fellow British Lion, Chris Cusiter at scrum-half.
There are two further positional switches with Rory Lamont moving to the right wing and his elder brother Sean moving to outside centre.
Cusiter and Nick De Luca are now on the bench, where Richie Vernon will be involved for the first time in a match-day 22 since the Rugby World Cup pool match against England last October.
Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: "Stuart Hogg did well off the bench in Cardiff, stood out in the A team victory over England Saxons and has been one of Glasgow's most consistent performers this season. He fully deserves his first start."
Hogg, who comes from a renowned rugby family, said: "It's a dream come true to play international rugby. When I was a kid we'd play full contact rugby in the street in the Weensland area of Hawick.
"I'd be about five and there would be kids there up to about 12 or 13-years-old and you'd always think about what it would be like to play for Scotland. Now I've got the opportunity to win for Scotland at Murrayfield – brilliant."
Robinson acknowledged that the ankle injury sustained by Max Evans against Wales earlier this month and which ruled him out of this game influenced his selection.
"Graeme Morrison has worked hard back at Glasgow and captained the team in their games against Scarlets and Connacht. He is a good ball carrier and has something to prove on his return to the Scotland team," noted Robinson.
