Ben White will earn his 14th cap for Gregor Townsend's Scotland this Saturday (18th) when they take on Italy at BT Murrayfield to conclude their 2023 Guinness Six Nations Championship campaign.

White makes up one of two Premiership players in the starting XV alongside Exeter Chiefs' Jonny Gray, with Blair Kinghorn partnering the scrum-half in the half-back partnership for the first time this Championship.

The 24-year-old Exile has started all five games in this year's tournament, scoring in a Calcutta Cup win over England in Round 1 before a win in the Scottish capital over Warren Gatland's Wales.

Townsend's men sit third in the league standings with 10 points to their name, who will seek to follow up last year's 33-22 away triumph over Italy this weekend.

The match takes place this Saturday (18th) at BT Murrayfield, kicking-off at 12:30pm and will be televised live on BBC One.
