RaboDirect Pro 12: 100 games for Ross Ford for Edinburgh in game against Zebre
Edinburgh and Scotland hooker Ross Ford will reach a big milestone for his team on Friday as he makes his 100th appearance in their away game at Zebre.
Ford will bring up his century in Friday's RaboDirect PRO12 clash with Zebre at Stadio XXV Aprile.
Ford's landmark will see him edge past the number made by interim coach, Stevie Scott, during his tenure as hooker from 1998 to 2002.
"Ross has been an exceptional servant to Edinburgh and Scottish Rugby, keeping himself in immense mental and physical condition throughout a very distinguished career to date," said Scott.
"He's a fantastic character and role model to young players and shows the relentless dedication you would expect from someone who has won 69 caps, captained his country and toured with the British Lions.
"It's great to have someone of his calibre reach such a milestone at the club."
Ford is one of four Scotland internationalists to return to the front-line following last weekend's 14-8 victory over Ulster at Murrayfield.
The remaining three are in the back division, with Tim Visser, Matt Scott and captain Greig Laidlaw starting at wing, centre and scrum-half respectively.
Perry Parker's inclusion is the only other change to the pack, as a replacement for Grant Gilchrist, who is absent because of a family bereavement.
Meanwhile, Zebre will hope to pick up their first win of the RaboDirect PRO12 season in this clash after falling to a 24-10 defeat against the Scarlets in their most recent outing.
Named in their side are Italy stars Giovanbattista Venditti and Gonzalo Garcia, who form the midfield while Luciano Orquera, Tito Tebaldi and Quintin Geldenhuys also make the XV.
