THE TEAM NEWS
- Scotland landed the Calcutta Cup for the third time in succession as they defeated England at Twickenham last week to set themselves up nicely for the rest of the Six Nations.
- The Scots fought back late on to secure the win and Gregor Townsend is boosted by the return of prop Zander Fagerson who returns from a hamstring injury with WP Nel dropping to the bench.
Starting XV: Hogg, Steyn, Jones, Tuipulotu, Van der Merwe; Russell, White; Schoeman, Turner, Z. Fagerson; R. Gray, Gilchrist; Ritchie, Crosbie, M. Fagerson
Replacements: Brown, Bhatti, Nel, J. Gray, Dempsey, Horne, Kinghorn, Harris
- Wales suffered a heavy loss at the hands of Ireland last week with the return of Warren Gatland unable to prevent his side from being outclassed by their opponents.
- Gatland will be hoping for much better this week and has made changes to his side in an effort to change Wales’ fortunes with the pack seeing numerous alterations while the back line remains the intact.
Starting XV: L. Williams; Adams, North, Hawkins, Dyer; Biggar, T. Williams; W. Jones, Owens, Lewis, Jenkins, Beard, Tshiunza, Reffell, Morgan.
Replacements: Baldwin, Carre, Brown, Davies, Faletau, Webb, Patchell, Cuthbert.
Scotland have shown lots of improvement under the stewardship of Gregor Townsend and proved too good for England last week. They will be desperate to build on that success as they take on Wales at Murrayfield with the visitors needing to put their poor effort against Ireland behind them. The Welsh were comfortably beaten in their opening clash and have reacted by making sweeping changes in their pack. However, it might not be enough to overcome a buoyant Scottish side who should be able to make it back-to-back wins to begin the campaign.
