Stuart Hogg returns to Scotland line-up for Fiji test
Scotland make nine changes for match at a sold-out Murrayfield this Saturday.
Scotland have announced their starting line-up to take on Fiji at Murrayfield this Saturday.
Glasgow Warriors full-back Stuart Hogg will return to the starting line-up for the Autumn Test match after two months out injured.
The 26-year-old, who last played against Munster in September, is one of nine changes made by head coach Gregor Townsend from last week's 21-10 defeat to Wales.
Greig Laidlaw will return to captain the side with 23-year-old Exeter Chiefs lock Sam Skinner making his first start.
It was initially feared that British and Irish Lions player Hogg would be out for up to 12 weeks but he has recovered quicker than expected.
Townsend said: "It's a more experienced side this week in terms of time together at this level, while we've rewarded some of those who performed well off the bench with the chance to start.
"We've had a good week in training with a slightly different focus for the challenges we expect Fiji to present this Saturday.
"In particular, they pose huge threats off turnover ball, utilising some of the best individual players, one-on-one, in the world.

"They score more tries than any team in the world off turnover ball, about 66%, whereas most teams are under about 10 or 15%, so if you repeatedly give them turnover ball it'll be a tough afternoon.
"That presents us with an opportunity to consider different approaches tactically and use different strategies to apply pressure in front of our home support.
"Our pack will have to work exceptionally hard against a very physical Fijian side and our backs will have to be alert to opportunities as a consequence of that work.
"We have to be physical and accurate, play to our strengths and put them under pressure in areas they don't want to go into, to make sure the game is open for us but not for them."
