Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has changed the entire starting XV that triumphed over Canada last week for their clash with the United States this Friday in Washington DC.

A Scottish team containing ten debutants in the squad beat Canada 73-12 last Saturday in the first of their four-match tour of the Americas.

Townsend has reverted back to a much more experienced team which will run out at Audi Field, with Sione Tuipulotu and Rory Darge co-captaining the side, with Jamie Ritchie and Kyle Steyn serving as vice-captains.

The match will see flanker Jamie Ritchie earn his 50th cap for Scotland.
