Congratulations to Gloucester Rugby prop Alasdair Dickinson who has been named at loose head for Scotland for their RBS Six Nations opener against France at Murrayfield on Sunday.
Also named in the 22 are Gloucester team mates hooker Scott Lawson and scrum half Rory Lawson but flanker Alasdair Strokosch has failed to recover from the ankle injury that he suffered playing for Gloucester against Biarritz in the Heineken Cup.
Dickinson will win his 14th cap for Scotland and it's a welcome return to his country's colours after her missed out on the Autumn internationals because of injury.
