Laidlaw named Scotland captain in absence of Gilchrist

Grieg Laidlaw, Gloucester scrum half, has been named Scotland captain for the test against Argentina. Grant Gilchrist, Edinburgh second row, was originally named captain but in his absence Laidlaw has been handed the captaincy. Laidlaw was Scotland captain last year but as Gilchrist progressed Vern Cotter realised the potential of the 24 year old and made him captain.
