Wales team to face Scotland: Gatland makes one change
Wales have made one change to their starting XV from the side that beat England, with Adam Beard coming into the side for the trip to Edinburgh to face Scotland on Saturday.
Beard, who featured in the last nine matches for Wales, returns to the starting line-up in place of the injured Cory Hill and will once again pack down alongside captain Alun Wyn Jones in the second row.
