RUGBY ace Huw Jones will make his third start of the Autumn Tests as he lines up against Australia at BT Murrayfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Musselburgh-born star, a try scorer in the win over Samoa and defeat to New Zealand, will once more wear the number 13 jersey on the occasion of his 11th cap. 

Jones, who lived on Pinkie Road as a youngster before moving south of the Border, will once more be partnered in midfield by Glasgow Warriors colleague Alex Dunbar, providing the latter passes return-to-play protocols following a head knock against the All Blacks.

Townsend has made four changes to the team, with Jones' Glasgow team-mate Ryan Wilson returning at the expense of Edinburgh's Cornell Du Preez at number eight.

Grant Gilchrist is preferred to Ben Toolis as Jonny Gray's second-row partner, while Sean Maitland returns in place of Lee Jones on the left wing.

The final change sees Fraser Brown return on the bench, with George Turner dropping out of the squad.

The county ace will be hoping for a repeat of his two-try performance as he made his international debut 12 months ago (pictured below, by Alastair Ross), but will hope to be on the winning side this time round. 

East Lothian Courier:

Despite Jones' brace, the Scots were beaten 22-23 by the Wallabies. 

Saturday's match, a third consecutive sellout of the autumn for Scotland, kicks off at 2.30pm
