London - Scotland coach Vern Cotter has made three changes to his side for Saturday's match against Ireland in Dublin as they look to finish this season's Six Nations with a third straight win.

Duncan Weir has replaced Finn Russell at flyhalf after his Glasgow colleague was ruled out with a concussion suffered in the opening minutes of the team's 29-18 victory over France at Murrayfield last weekend.

Meanwhile New Zealander Cotter has made two changes in the pack with Ryan Wilson coming in for Josh Strauss at No 8 and Tim Swinson taking over in the second row from injured lock Jonny Gray (chest muscle).
