Wales have made one change from the team that lost to England ahead of this weekend's Six Nations clash with Scotland at Murrayfield.

Rob Evans, Ken Owens and Tomas Francis start in the front row with Jake Ball and Alun Wyn Jones partnered at lock.

Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric are named on the flanks with Ross Moriarty at number 8.

Rhys Webb and Dan Diggar start at half-backs with Scott Williams and Jonathan Davies completing the midfield.

George North returns to the starting line-up on the wing with Liam Williams operating on the opposite wing. Leigh Halfpenny begins at full-back.

Wales go into the game on the back of a defeat against England while Scotland also lost against France in Paris. 

Both teams are locked on five points apiece heading into round three of this year's championship.
