Scotland 'A' team head coach Rob Moffat has made five changes to the starting XV that defeated Argentina Pumas last Wednesday for this weekend's Barclays Churchill Cup decider at Toyota Park in Chicago.

Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Colin Gregor will team up with Saracens stand-off Gordon Ross whilst Edinburgh duo Mark Robertson and Roland Reid return to the wings.

The only change in the pack sees Glasgow flanker James Eddie re-instated to the blindside berth as Moffat anticipates a physical battle against a Saxons side in search of their fourth Churchill Cup title in six years.

Looking forward to the final, Moffat said: "We've taken a lot of positives from the first two games. The big challenge for us now is to raise the bar of performance once again and ultimately win the Churchill Cup.

We know England are a big test for us because they're strong and powerful up front and have some game breakers behind the scrum. But whilst we respect that, we are concentrating on our own game.

The Churchill Cup final is a positive and exciting challenge for us and everyone connected with the Scotland _x0018_A' team is excited by the opportunity that lies ahead."
