Warren Gatland makes three changes to the Wales team that beat Ireland last weekend ahead of their clash with Scotland.

Warren Gatland has made three changes to the Wales team that beat Ireland last weekend ahead of their Six Nations clash with Scotland in Cardiff on Sunday.

Ryan Jones moves from blindside flanker to lock in place of Bradley Davies, who was banned for the remainder of the tournament for a dangerous tackle on Ireland's Donnacha Ryan.

Dan Lydiate moves to blindside after recovering from an ankle injury, and Gethin Jenkins comes into the front row to replace Rhys Gill.

"Gethin brings a wealth of experience to the team, which is the main reason we have brought him in for Rhys, who is unlucky to miss out with Paul James covering both sides of the scrum from the bench," said Wales coach Warren Gatland.

"Dan's return from injury is timely and Ryan's versatility allows us to cover for Bradley with minimum disruption."

Wales: 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Mike Phillips, 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (c), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Ian Evans, 4 Ryan Jones, 3 Adam Jones, 2 Huw Bennett, 1 Gethin Jenkins

Replacements: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Paul James, 18 Lou Reed, 19 Andy Powell, 20 Lloyd Williams, 21 James Hook, 22 Scott Williams
