The introduction of Nick De Luca is the only change to the Scotland line-up for Saturday’s wooden spoon decider with Italy.
De Luca was due to start last weekend’s 32-14 defeat to Italy, before injuring his hamstring in the warm-up and being replaced by Lee Jones.
Jones suffered severe concussion in Dublin and is excluded from the 22. Max Evans is shifted to the right wing in his absence.
Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said of the selection: "Nick was unfortunate to miss the game in Ireland through a hamstring problem and the challenge for him on Saturday will be to contribute as purposefully against the Italians as he did in his last game, against France."
Scotland have failed to win in four Six Nations matches this year and Robinson is looking to improve upon a record of 11 defeats from 14 championship games.
Scotland team to play Italy in the Six Nations on Saturday: S Hogg (Glasgow Warriors); M Evans (Castres), N De Luca (Edinburgh), G Morrison (Glasgow Warriors), S Lamont (Scarlets); G Laidlaw (Edinburgh), M Blair (Edinburgh); A Jacobsen (Edinburgh), R Ford (capt, Edinburgh), G Cross (Edinburgh), R Gray (Glasgow Warriors), J Hamilton (Gloucester), J Barclay (Glasgow Warriors), R Rennie (Edinburgh), D Denton (Edinburgh).
Replacements: S Lawson (Gloucester), E Murray (Newcastle), A Kellock (Glasgow Warriors), R Vernon (Sale Sharks), C Cusiter (Glasgow Warriors), R Jackson (Glasgow Warriors), J Cuthbert (Bath).
