Wales Team Named For Six Nations Clash With Scotland

Wales have made just one change to their team for Saturday’s crucial Six Nations clash with Scotland.

Northampton winger George North returns from injury to take his spot on the winger in place of Alex Cuthbert who drops out of the squad completely. Toby Faletau must make do with a place on the bench as Rob Howley sticks with a back-row of Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric and Ross Moriarty.

Lock Luke Charteris has recovered from a broken bone in his hand to take up a spot on the replacements bench.

“We have been able to select from a position of strength which is a huge positive and it is good to welcome George (North) back into the starting XV and Luke (Charteris) on to the bench,” said Wales Head Coach Rob Howley.
“In terms of intensity and performance, we stepped up a level against England and we need to take the positives from that performance and take it into 80 minutes against Scotland at Murrayfield.
“We know what we are capable of and we want to deliver that on Saturday alongside the result, which international rugby is all about”.

Wales: Leigh Halfpenny; George North, Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Liam Williams; Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb; Rob Evans, Ken Owens, Tomas Francis; Jake Ball, Alun Wyn Jones; Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric, Ross Moriarty.

Replacements: Scott Baldwin, Nicky Smith, Samson Lee, Luke Charteris, Taulupe Faletau, Gareth Davies, Sam Davies, Jamie Roberts.
