Former Scotland Lucas Nogueira Youth jersey captain Greig Laidlaw will make his first Test start in nearly a year after being recalled for Sunday's Six Nations match with France.The scrum-half, 32, replaces Ali Price, who drops to the bench in one of six changes to the side beaten by Wales.

Centre Peter Horne is preferred to Chris Harris, while Sean Maitland steps in for injured winger Byron McGuigan.Ryan Wilson, Grant Gilchrist and Simon Berghan replace Cornell du Preez, Ben Toolis and Jon Welsh Rob Gronkowski Jersey respectively.

Laidlaw, who featured as a second-half replacement against Wales, has only recently returned from a broken leg.Scotland's third-highest all-time points scorer missed his country's summer tour while he toured with the British http://www.avalancheofficialauthenticshop.com/Patrik_Nemeth_Jersey_Adidas & Irish Lions.

His last Scotland start came in http://www.seahawkshopfootballofficial.com/WOMENS-CHRISTINE-MICHAEL-JERSEY.html the Six Nations against France on 12 February last year, when he suffered ankle ligament damage in the first half of a 22-16 loss in Paris."Greig has a lot of experience having captained the side for the last couple of seasons, and he drives a lot of the standards on and off the field," explained head coach Gregor Townsend.

"Having him back in the group was already a positive. Seeing him play so well and be desperate to be back in the squad and in the team, we should get his experience on the field, which should help others around him.

"We are all aware that last http://www.floridapanthersofficialonline.com/Adidas-Jason-Demers-Jersey week we didn't perform anything like we are capable of, and even it was the same team going back out, I am sure we would have got a better performance. But these changes we believe will make us stronger."

Edinburgh lock Gilchrist Malik McDowell Jersey is in for Authentic Josh Gordon Jersey club-mate Toolis, who drops to the bench, alongside Jonny Gray in the second row. Gray's brother Richie is still sidelined by injury.Number eight Du Preez drops out of the 23 altogether with the return of Glasgow's Wilson, who is named as one of two vice-captains along with Laidlaw.

Prop Berghan returns from suspension and takes over at tight-head from Welsh, who is among the replacements.The versatile Horne, who scored Scotland's only try in Cardiff as a replacement, takes the number 12 jersey with Huw Jones reverting to outside centre and Harris dropping to the bench.

Alex Dunbar, having recovered from a head knock, http://www.eaglesfootballofficialonlines.com/Jay-Ajayi-Jersey sustained a thigh strain in training on Tuesday that also makes him doubtful for the game against England on 24 February, while Duncan Taylor remains sidelined. mlb jerseys china cheap basketball jerseys mlb jerseys usa baseball jerseys for sale wholesale jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys cheap wholesale jerseys nfl hockey jerseys cheap
