Head Coach – Vern Cotter
New Zealander Vern Cotter has been in charge of Scotland since 2014 and led them to the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals in 2015.
The 54-year-old has made a significant impact in a relatively short period of time, piecing together a squad that can now compete with the very best on their day.
Cotter’s contract ends at the end of the 2016/17 season and the Scottish Rugby Union has announced Glasgow Warriors chief Gregor Townsend as his replacement.
Captain – Greig Laidlaw
Scotland skipper Greig Laidlaw has led his country more than anyone else, scoring 570 Test points in the process.
The 31-year-old, who made his international debut over six years ago, was nominated for World Player of the Year in 2015 and is renowned as one the world’s finest goalkickers.
This could be Laidlaw’s last Six Nations as captain after he signed a deal to join Top 14 side Clermont in the summer.

Stadium – Murrayfield Stadium
Murrayfield is recognised as one of the most prestigious stadiums in Europe. The Scottish home fans are also guaranteed to create an electric atmosphere during the 2017 Six Nations.
Did you know? During the Second World War the ground at Murrayfield was offered to the nation and was taken over by the Royal Army Service Corps and used as a supply depot.
Rugby History: Although a union stadium, Murrayfield hosted the Rugby League Challenge Cup Finals of 2000 and 2002.
Key Player – Stuart Hogg
Stuart Hogg was the Player of the Tournament at last year’s Six Nations, scoring one of the tries of the championship against Ireland (Below).
The 24-year-old has since deservedly become the highest-paid player in Scottish rugby history after signing a bumper £375,000-a-year deal to stay at Glasgow Warriors.
Hogg will now look to drive his country forward once again in 2017 with a number of his trademark breaks and last-ditch tackles.
Rising Star – Huw Jones
Huw Jones has quickly established himself as a game-changer during his first three Tests.
The 23-year-old scored a brace against Australia on debut during the Autumn internationals and followed up with a sublime assist for Sean Maitland’s try during Scotland’s narrow 19-16 win over Argentina a week later.
Scottish Rugby remains keen to sign Jones for either Edinburgh or Glasgow Warriors, but his South African province are believed to be resistant to letting the player leave before his contract ends in October 2017
Social Media Favourite – Tim Visser
The Scots are not the most prominent on social media but winger Tim Visser often has something to offer and is worth a follow.
