Saffa duo set to make Scotland debut


Duhan van der Merwe and Ollie Kebble have been included in Scotland's match 23 for Friday's Test against Georgia at Murrayfield.

Van der Merwe, the brother of Springbok hooker Akker, will start on the left wing with Kebble, the son of former Bok prop Guy, set to come off the bench.

Flyhalf Finn Russell is also among the replacements, and will make his first appearance for Scotland since last year's World Cup if he comes onto the field to earn a 50th Test cap.

Russell was dropped from Scotland's Six Nations squad after breaching team protocol with a late-night drinking session ahead of their opener with Ireland.
