Gregor Townsend has opted to name an experienced line-up ahead of Scotland’s World Cup opener against Ireland.

Skipper Stuart McInally will lead out a team boasting 630 caps for the Pool A clash at Yokohama’s International Stadium.

Exeter fullback Stuart Hogg and Saracens wing Sean Maitland return to the back three after missing this month’s final warm-up Test against Georgia to partner Glasgow’s Tommy Seymour.

Former skipper Greig Laidlaw joins playmaker Finn Russell at halfback, with centres Sam Johnson and Duncan Taylor the only backs to be reinstated from the 36-9 win over the Lelos.

Glasgow forwards Ryan Wilson and Jonny Gray are the only forwards to remain in the pack, which features six more changes from the Georgia win.

Allan Dell, captain McInally and Willem Nel form the frontrow.
