Following last weekend’s loss to locals rivals Glasgow; Moffat has been forced to put his faith in the National Academy and Heriot’s stand-off against Cardiff.
Hutton featured for Edinburgh against Newcastle in a pre-season friendly but has yet to make his Magners League bow this season.
But with a hip injury plaguing Godman – Moffat has seen his hand forced.
He said: “We are looking forward to seeing what Rory can do. It is right for him to get a chance this week.
“This may be his Magners League debut, but he has a lot of experience both with Scotland sevens and at Premier 1 level with Hawick last season.”
Hutton’s elevation into the starting line-up is one of six changes to the side which lost to Glasgow Warriors last weekend with props Allan Jacobsen and David Young added to the front row.
