Hogg has been in outstanding form during the autumn series, helping Scotland beat Samoa before losing narrowly to world champions New Zealand.

Sean Maitland has switch from wing to full-back to replace the Hawick man, with Byron McGuigan of Sale likely to step off the bench to take Maitland’s wing berth.

It will be South African-born McGuigan’s first start for Scotland.

The versatile Ruaridh Jackson is added to the replacements.
