Invercargill - Scotland coach Andy Robinson has made eight changes to the Scotland squad which beat Italy 23-12 last month for their Rugby World Cup opener against Romania on Saturday.
The frontrow from that match has been completely replaced and Richie Gray comes back in place of Nathan Hines in the second row.
In the backs, only scrumhalf Mike Blair and wings Simon Danielli and Max Evans are retained.
Four players from the starting XV in Scotland's final match of the 2007 World Cup 2007 - a 19-13 quarter-final defeat by Argentina - will start again on Saturday.
Hooker Ross Ford, scrum half Mike Blair, left wing Simon Danielli and right wing Max Evans make up that quartet.
Scotland's record cap holder Chris Paterson has been selected at full back and wins his 106th cap.
Paterson, who didn't miss a single attempt at goal during the 2007 World Cup 2007, becomes the first Scot to play at four World Cups. He will play his 12th match in the tournament, putting him two behind Scotland record holder Doddie Weir.
