Kane Linnett -back from injury for Scotland's World Cup quarter-final

Centre Kane Linnett and hooker Ian Henderson have both recovered from rib and knee injuries respectively that forced them to miss the Bravehearts' last group match against the USA last Thursday and go straight back into the starting line-up.

Henderson's return is timely following the loss of veteran number nine Ben Fisher, who pulled out of last week's match after tearing a calf muscle in the warm-up.

Linnett's return at centre will release the versatile Danny Addy to plug the gap in the second row caused by the loss of Dale Ferguson through suspension.

Probable team: M Russell; D Scott, B Hellewell, K Linnett, A Hurst; D Brough (capt), P Wallace; A Walker, I Henderson, L Douglas, B Phillips, D Addy, B Kavanagh. Subs (from): A Henderson, M Stringer, A Szostak, O Wilkes, S Barlow, B Carter.
