FORMER Scotland winger Tom Brown will once more start for Edinburgh Rugby as they play Leinster in Dublin tomorrow (Friday), but fellow county ace Chris Dean is out of the squad.

Dean has been an ever-present in the squad so far this season, but is replaced by Scotland 7s player James Johnstone in the number 13 jersey.

Once-capped Brown retains his place on the right wing, while he is joined in the back three by another Scotland 7s player, Dougie Fife, and the recalled Glenn Bryce.

Head coach Richard Cockerill has made nine changes from the loss to defending champions Scarlets on Saturday.

The ex-England hooker said: "The guys who've come in will provide us with competition and I expect them to fight for a place in this team.

"If we match the levels of desire that were shown against Scarlets last weekend, I have every confidence that we can come away with a positive result."
