Edinburgh flanker Luke Crosbie will captain Scotland A against Chile this Saturday in the first match of the South American tour. The 25-year-old made his Test debut against Tonga last year and will partner Ben Muncaster, who will pull on his first senior Scotland jersey having graduated from the U20s and impressed with Edinburgh.

Ali Price, Blair Kinghorn and Mark Bennett are all options from the bench, while Scotland’s English Premiership players were unavailable for the match due to the uncapped international game falling outside of the regulation nine Test window.

Having seen their match versus England A in Leicester cancelled last June, this will be the first time that Scotland A will have played since February 2014 when they drew 16-16 draw with England. Chile, meanwhile, are using this match as preparation for their World Cup play-offs against the USA. It is also the first time Chile have played a Six Nations team in more than 60 years.
