Cardiff clash for Denton and Priestland

11 February 2016

Bath Rugby teammates David Denton and Rhys Priestland could go head to head this Saturday at the Principality Stadium as Wales face Scotland in the RBS 6 Nations (k.o. 16:50). 

Once again, Denton starts at number eight, following Scotland's opening weekend loss to England. Priestland, who was an impressive early replacement for the injury-struck Dan Biggar in Wales's draw with Ireland, is once again on the bench.

Denton (who has 33 caps to Priestland's 41) is part of a starting line-up showing only one change, whilst Wales field an unchanged starting team. 

Wales team: Liam Williams (Scarlets); George North (Northampton Saints), Jonathan Davies (ASM Clermont), Jamie Roberts (Harlequins), Tom James (Cardiff Blues); Dan Biggar (Ospreys), Gareth Davies (Scarlets); Rob Evans (Scarlets), Scott Baldwin (Ospreys), Samson Lee (Scarlets), Luke Charteris (Racing 92), Alun Wyn Jones (Ospreys), Sam Warburton (Cardiff Blues, Capt), Justin Tipuric (Ospreys), Taulupe Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons).

Replacements: Ken Owens (Scarlets), Gethin Jenkins (Cardiff Blues), Tomas Francis (Exeter Chiefs), Bradley Davies (Wasps), Dan Lydiate (Ospreys), Lloyd Williams (Cardiff Blues), Rhys Priestland (Bath Rugby), Gareth Anscombe (Cardiff Blues).
