Scotland name their team to face Wales on Saturday

Scotland throw the first dice of the autumn series as head coach Gregor Townsend released his starting lineup along with the entire match day 23 to face Wales at the Principality stadium. Townsend welcomed back several experienced Scotland players into the team.

Four starters remain from the Summer Test triumph in Argentina in a team of entirely home based players that will feature this Saturday. Hooker Stuart McInally returns as captain alongside fellow Edinburgh front-row Allan Dell, while young backs Adam Hastings and Blair Kinghorn feature again as stand-off and full-back respectively.


This provides a great chance to test the many home grown talent that doesn’t get much of the big stage while thereafter the squad features the return of a number of seasoned campaigners for the rest of the autumn series.

The youthful feel of the team is blended with the wealth of an experienced Glasgow Warriors quintet: wingers Tommy Seymour and Lee Jones, centres Huw Jones and Alex Dunbar, and scrum-half Ali Price.

In the pack, Jonny Gray, Willem Nel, Hamish Watson and Ryan Wilson return to the pack, alongside lock Ben Toolis and back-row Jamie Ritchie.

Edinburgh back Darcy Graham earns his first appearance in a Scotland match-day 23 and could make his debut if called upon from the bench.

“This match will be special in that the collections will all go to helping the cause for Motor Neurone Disease.

This week the Welsh Rugby Union and Scottish Rugby committed to donating a joint six-figure sum from the proceeds of the game, with the associated visibility for the fight against Motor Neurone Disease also providing an invaluable contribution.”
