Ben White has been selected in the matchday 23 as a replacement for Gregor Townsend’s Scotland, who take on New Zealand in the Autumn Nations Series this weekend.

White was introduced in the second period of Scotland’s second Autumn Nations Series game against Fiji last weekend, his first appearance since the summer tour to Argentina, and impressed at BT Murrayfield.

The 24-year-old scrum-half aided in the 28-12 win, touching down for a score of his own as well as three tackles, and will look to make his eighth cap this weekend in the Scottish capital.

The All Blacks took a convincing win in the United Kingdom last weekend, winning 55-23 in Cardiff against Wayne Pivac’s Wales.

This weekend’s encounter takes place this Sunday (13th) at 2.15pm and will be streamed live on Amazon Prime Sport.

After this weekend’s billing Scotland conclude this year’s autumnal schedule against Argentina at Murrayfield, kicking-off at 3.15pm next Saturday (19th).


Best of luck, Ben!
