FINN RUSSELL will start for Scotland against the All Blacks on Sunday.

The Racing 92 playmaker was left out of the squad for the first two autumn tests but – after being recalled this week following an injury to Adam Hastings – has got the nod to start ahead of Blair Kinghorn at number 10.

Kinghorn, who began the series as Gregor Townsend’s favoured choice for the position, is named on the bench.

Fraser Brown is an eye-catching inclusion at hooker, while Sione Tuipulotu returns at number 12.

Scotland will turn out in Doddie Weir’s tartan for their autumn international against New Zealand on Sunday to mark the fifth anniversary of his motor neurone disease research foundation.

The former Scotland international is expected to be in the crowd for the match, five years on from his appearance at the same fixture just months after he revealed his motor neurone disease (MND) diagnosis.

He went on to found the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation (MNDF), which has now committed almost £8million to research projects across the UK.

At the match on Sunday, Scotland will wear specially created shirts with numbers in Weir’s famous blue and yellow tartan to mark the foundation’s milestone.

Weir wore the number five jersey in his club career and when he won 61 caps for Scotland.
