Wayne Pivac has selected his Wales team to play Scotland as they look to bounce back from a tough start to the 2022 Six Nations.
Jac Morgan will win his first senior international cap for Wales having been selected at open-side flanker. He joins Taine Basham, who follows up his try-scoring Six Nations debut with a move to blind side, and Ross Moriarty, who returns to the starting line up at number 8 having won his 50th cap as a replacement in Dublin, in the back row.
Owen Watkin, whose last start for Wales was against Scotland in last year’s Championship, is named at outside centre. Nick Tompkins partners Watkin in the Wales midfield.
Josh Adams is ruled out due to a tight calf.

“With Ross Moriarty now having had more training and game time under his belt we think he’s the right guy to start.
“Jac Morgan comes in for his debut. He’s someone that’s really impressed us in training. He’s worked very, very hard, he gives us a lot of physicality and he’s very good over the ball.
“We expect Scotland to come down full of confidence. They’ve started with a good win. Across the board they are very competitive and committed side that throws everything at every play. We know that’s going to be tough work for us and a big challenge that we’re looking forward to and are up for.
