Wales Changes

Jac Morgan will play his first game from Wales, a debut against Scotland in the six nations. Wales has made four changes.

Wales Coach Wayne Pivac Said: “Jac comes in for his debut and is someone that’s really impressed us in training,”.

“He’s worked very hard, he gives us a lot of physicalities and he’s very good over the ball.

“With Ross [Moriarty] now having had more training and game time under his belt we think he’s the right guy to start.

“On reflection, we didn’t achieve what we wanted to out in Dublin.

“Part of it was getting parity in terms of the physical side of the game, we came up short and there is no hiding from that fact.

“Jac is a very abrasive sort of player, and Ross we know is very strong in that area. We’ve leaned that way, and it gives us something different.”
