THE selectors have made three personnel and two positional changes in

the Scottish Schools team to meet England at Doncaster after their

defeat by the Irish Schools at Galashiels on Wednesday.

Gordon Findlay of Dollar Academy returns to full back after having

played the past two matches, against the Scottish youths and the Irish

schools, as a wing. Jamie Doran of St Aloysius' College drops out.

Nigel Douglas of Edinburgh Academy returns at centre after injury,

allowing Kenneth Milligan of Stewart's Melville to return to his regular

place at wing to the exclusion of schoolmate Murray Thomson. John

Anderson of Merchiston Castle School returns on the right wing.

Tom Smith of Rannoch School wins his first cap at prop, as Merchiston

Castle School's Graeme Walsingham is unavailable, and another new cap

will be Peter Mauritzen of Stewart's Melville College, who comes in at

lock forward for Malcolm McVie of Edinburgh Academy.

There is considerable doubt as to whether David Barnett of Perth

Academy, who went off with a shoulder injury in the Irish match, will be

fit in time for Saturday's match against England.
