Centre Chris Harris has been selected on the bench for Scotland's penultimate Rugby World Cup Pool A match against Russia.

Cumbrian Harris, who qualifies to play for the Scots through his grandmother and made his first-ever World Cup start in their 34-0 win over Samoa, drops to the bench in one of 14 changes, with Edinburgh winger Darcy Graham the only player retained from the starting line-up which defeated Samoa in Kobe last Monday.

Full-back Blair Kinghorn, centre Pete Horne, lock Ben Toolis and hooker George Turner get their first chance to make a mark on this year’s tournament from kick-off, with recent squad addition Henry Pyrgos handed the opportunity to do likewise from the bench.

Winger Tommy Seymour and back-row John Barclay complete the starting side, coming in from outside the match-day 23 that faced the Pacific Islanders.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said: "First and foremost, we’ve picked a team we believe is capable of defeating an increasingly impressive and combative Russia side, who are looking to finish their Pool campaign on a high."

"Any successful World Cup campaign is built on a squad effort and those players who didn’t get the opportunity to start against Samoa really helped provide that team with a quality week of preparation," Townsend added.

"Now, it’s their chance to get stuck into our next important game as we enter the final week of our Pool matches."

If Carlisle-born Harris comes off the bench tomorrow morning (kick-off at 8.15am UK time), Harris, who this summer has joined Gloucester, will earn his 13th international cap.
