RORY Darge will make his first start for Scotland on Saturday when they take on France.

The Glasgow Warriors flanker made his international debut at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff earlier this month and is named alongside Hamish Watson and Magnus Bradbury in a new-look starting back-row.

Darge, of Aberlady, came off the bench to make his debut in the 20-17 Six Nations defeat to Wales.

Now, he will be on from the start with a large home crowd cheering Scotland on.

Kick-off is at 2.15pm and the match is screened live on BBC One.

Darge, who turned 22 yesterday (Wednesday), previously spoke to Courier Sport about making his national team debut.

He said: "I was nervous all day and then at night I was nervous trying to get to sleep.

“Once I was actually on the bench for some reason I was alright and the nerves kind of dissipated.

“I was more sort of watching the game and soaking up the atmosphere.

“Thankfully it was just a quick ‘Darge, you’re on’ and then I went down, took my warm-up kit off and ran straight on rather than a lot of waiting about and saying ‘you’re coming on in five minutes’ or whatever.

“It happened so quickly so that helped a bit with the nerves as well.

“And then the time that I was on the pitch went by so fast.

“I think I got on about the 60-minute mark and it just flew by.”
