Dan Parks, who took over from Paterson in last Sunday's 31-0defeat by France at Murrayfield when Paterson moved to full-back after Lee waspulled off after a dreadful match, keeps the fly-half position.
Otherwise the side is unchanged although there is a fitness doubtover flanker Cameron Mather who has been bracketed in alongside AllisterHogg.
Scotland, who have lost all four of their games so far in thisseason's Six Nations will be 'whitewashed' if they lose to an Ireland team forwhom victory would secure the Triple Crown and possibly the Championship itself.
Their defeat against France was the first time since 1978 thatScotland had failed to score in a Six Nations game and coach Matt Williams, in hisfirst season in charge, admitted his largely youthful side were short onself-belief. "I feel sorry for the players because they have been verydedicated and I've kept saying to them the win will come but it will taketime," explained the Australian who previously coached the Irish sideLeinster.
"We've lost our last four games so, in terms of confidence,
"We've been working very hard, but the sad thing is we'refalling below the standards we expected."
