Leinster star Hines will be replaced at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday by Edinburgh's Jim Hamilton, who has only recently recovered from a long-term knee problem.

Scotland team doctor James Robson said: "Nathan suffered a calf strain and aggravated an old ankle injury during the match at the weekend. Whilst the injury has settled considerably, it is not at a level adequate for exposure to the rigours of Test match rugby and therefore Nathan is withdrawn from selection."
