Beard recalled by Wales for Scotland clash
Six Nations leaders Wales have made one change for the Scotland game as second-row Adam Beard comes into the starting XV.
The Ospreys lock is recalled due to the injury suffered by Cory Hill of the Dragons as the men in red beat England at the Principality Stadium last time out.
Scarlets' Jake Ball will take Beard's place on the bench as coach Warren Gatland otherwise keeps faith with the squad that recorded a landmark 12th Test victory in succession against the Red Rose last time out.
Therefore, Gareth Anscombe will continue at fly-half with Dan Biggar again on the bench.
The Dragons are two points clear of England at the top of the standings and victory on Saturday would mean that only Ireland stand between them and a first Grand Slam since 2012.
Ireland are sitting third in the table, one point behind England, having lost to Eddie Jones' men on the opening weekend of the tournament.
Wales team to face Scotland: Williams (Saracens), North (Scarlets), J Davies (Scarlets), Parkes (Scarlets), Adams (Worcester); Anscombe (Cardiff Blues), Davies (Scarlets); Evans (Scarlets), Owens (Scarlets), Francis (Exeter Chiefs), Beard (Ospreys), Jones (Ospreys, capt), Navidi (Cardiff Blues), Tipuric (Ospreys), Moriarty (Dragons).
Replacements: Dee (Dragons), Smith (Ospreys), Lewis (Cardiff Blues), Ball (Scarlets), Wainwright (Dragons), Davies (Ospreys), Biggar (Northampton), Watkin (Ospreys).
