Out-half Dan Biggar has recovered from the ankle problem that forced him off against Ireland and will take his place in an unchanged Wales side for tomorrow's clash with Scotland.

Biggar, one of the standout performers at the World Cup, was injured early in Sunday's 16-16 draw. He played on with heavy strapping for several minutes but had to leave the field midway through the first half.

Scotland have made one change, with Duncan Taylor replacing centre Matt Scott.

Wales - Liam Williams, G North, J Davies, J Roberts, T James; D Biggar, G Davies; R Evans, S Baldwin, S Lee; L Charteris, A-W Jones; S Warburton (capt), J Tipuric, T Faletau. Reps: K Owens, G Jenkins, T Francis, B Davies, D Lydiate, Lloyd Williams, R Priestland, G Anscombe.

Scotland - S Hogg; S Maitland, M Bennett, D Taylor, T Seymour; F Russell, G Laidlaw (capt); A Dickinson, R Ford, WP Nel; R Gray, J Gray; J Barclay, J Hardie, D Denton. Reps: S McInally, G Reid, Z Fagerson, T Swinson, B Cowan, S Hidalgo-Clyne, D Weir, S Lamont.
