Six Nations: Hamilton back for Scotland v. Ireland

Six Nations: Hamilton back for Scotland v. Ireland

Scotland recalled lock Jim Hamilton to play Ireland in the Six Nations on Saturday.
Alastair Kellock made way on Wednesday for Hamilton, who returns to partner Jason White in the second row at Murrayfield after missing Scotland's 26-6 win over Italy 11 days ago with a shoulder injury he picked up against France in the previous round.
Nathan Hines has been named as a replacement having recovered from a knee injury.
"Both Jim Hamilton and Nathan Hines have emerged unscathed from a tough couple of days' training and Jim will be in the starting lineup with Nathan on the bench," Scotland coach Frank Hadden said. "We are delighted to have players of this quality available to us, but equally delighted that Alastair Kellock made it such a difficult decision for us by the quality of his performance against Italy."
