Former Pembroke RFC player Luke Hamilton is set to make his Scotland debut after being named in their squad to face New Zealand on Saturday.

Leicester Tigers back rower Hamilton is selected on the bench for the game against the All Blacks at Murrayfield. 

Hamilton, 25, has been in outstanding form for the Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership this season. He was born in Wales and attended Lamphey Primary and Pembroke Secondary Schools - but qualifies for Scotland through his father.

He played for Wales Under 20s in the Junior World Cup in South Africa, but has been overlooked thus far by his country at senior level, and the Scots have now capitalised.

Hamilton began his professional career at the Cardiff Blues (2010-14). before a two year stint with Agen in France ended with him joining Leicester.

Scotland's game against New Zealand kicks off at Murrayfield at 5.15pm, with Gregor Townsend's men seeking a first-ever win over the visitors in their 31st clash since 1905.

Scotland: Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour, Huw Jones, Alex Dunbar, Lee Jones, Finn Russell, Ali Price, Darryl Marfo, Stuart McInally, Zander Fagerson, Jonny Gray, Ben Toolis, John Barclay (captain), Hamish Watson, Cornell du Preez.

Replacements: George Turner, Jamie Bhati, Simon Berghan, Grant Gilchrist, Luke Hamilton, Henry Pyrgos, Pete Horne, Byron McGuigan.
