AFTER his man of the match performance in the 21-16 win against Ireland, prop Wyn Jones says he is looking to maintain momentum when Wales take on Scotland at Murrayfield this Saturday.

The 28 year-old, who hails from Llandovery, is named in the same front-five that featured in Cardiff last weekend, alongside fellow Scarlets man Ken Owens and Tomas Francis in the front-row.

Jones expects a tough test against a Scotland side who claimed a famous 11-6 win over England at Twickenham in round one last weekend - and having beaten Wales in Llanelli in the autumn.

“Scotland showed that they were a very good side on Saturday (against England), they took their chances, they defended well and were deserved winners on the day,” commented Jones.

“We know what threats Scotland bring, we know that from the autumn, but this is the Six Nations and there is more at stake - so we’ll go there and try to right the wrongs of last time.”

Adam Beard continues to partner captain Alun Wyn Jones in the second row, whilst Aaron Wainwright comes into the back row to line up alongside Justin Tipuric and Taulupe Faletau, with Dan Lydiate, Josh Navidi and Josh Macleod all ruled out through injury.

Meanwhile scrum-half Gareth Davies comes into the starting XV to partner Dan Biggar, whilst Nick Tompkins and Owen Watkin will form a new-look midfield, and the versatile Liam Williams returns to the side to line-up alongside Louis Rees-Zammit and Leigh Halfpenny.

“We were pleased to kick the tournament off with a victory last weekend, and to be heading to Scotland with a win behind us: we continue to build and to move forward, and it is great to do that from a position of winning,” said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.

“It is a quick six-day turnaround this week, but we are looking forward to getting back out there - we have picked up a couple of injuries, but have to see it as more of an opportunity for those coming into the side.”

Elliot Dee, Rhodri Jones and Leon Brown provide the front-row cover for Wales with Will Rowlands and James Botham completing the forward contingent. Kieran Hardy, Callum Sheedy and Halaholo provide the back-line cover.
