Wales head coach Wayne Pivac has made four changes to the starting line up for the upcoming Six Nations game against Scotland.

While Liam Williams and Louis Rees-Zammit are retained at fullback and left wing respectively, Alex Cuthbert comes at right wing to make his first Six Nations start in five years.

Josh Adams misses out on selection with Owen Watkin starting at outside centre partnering with Nick Tompkins at midfield. A new look back row will see Ross Moriarty coming at number eight while Taine Basham will move to blindside with Jac Morgan at openside.

Skipper Dan Biggar will make his 100th Test appearance on Saturday while Jonathan Davies will also achieve the same milestone when he comes off the bench.

“To get 100 Test matches in total for any player from any country, it’s just a magnificent achievement," said Pivac on Biggar and Davies making their 100th Test appearance.

“It shows the hard work and dedication they have put in and the sacrifice they have made over a number of years to get to this stage.

“I am very, very happy for both of those players to achieve it and to do it on the same day.

“They have played a lot of Test matches together in the past. It is going to be fantastic to see them both out there at some stage.”
