Left wing Simon Webster, a replacement in last Saturday's 23-10defeat to Wales, pushes out Andrew Henderson to win his third cap while theexperienced Jason White comes in at blindside flanker for Allister Hogg. Henderson and Hogg are relegated to the bench.
White said he was delighted to have regained his place in thestarting XV especially as after the retirement of Martin Leslie following theWorld Cup he was seen as being the automatic first choice in the position. "I wasn't surprised that I didn't start because you can nevertake it for granted but I was disappointed," said the 25-year-old, who willwin his 34th cap on Saturday.
"Matt said that he saw my role as comingoff the bench as an impact player but obviously I see myself as more than justthat," added White, who was a member of the Scottish side that stunned England inthe final match of the 2000 tournament and deprived them of the Grand Slam.
White said he was looking forward to taking on two of his Saleteam-mates in centre Jason Robinson - scorer of three tries in the 50-9 maulingof Italy last Sunday - and Chris Jones, who will make his first start afterscoring on his debut last Sunday.
"Jason's dangerous when he gets the ball, he's got such goodfeet and he's so strong," White continued.
"Chris is also a very good player in the fact that he'sunorthodox, he's so tall and so explosive and he brings something different to theEngland side.
Scotland's Australian-born fullback Ben Hinshelwood said hebelieved that the Scots would put up a better performance than in the 23-10 defeatby Wales last Saturday. "England are the best team in the world so it is great to beplaying them on our home turf," said Hinshelwood, whose father Sandy played21 times for Scotland before emigrating to Australia.
"There's completely new systems and processes that Matt hasimplemented that will work but it's up to us to make sure we do them on the pitch.
"Unfortunately for the first half-hour or 40 minutes wedidn't really settle into them last week. But we've worked on them this week and each game will be astep up from the last game and we're looking for an improved performance,"added Hinshelwood, who wins his 11th cap on Saturday.
