Andrew Davison is moved into the back row, allowing Callum Hunter-Hill to come into the second row.

Wales chances of going one better than the previous Six Nations championship, when they finished runners up to England, by winning the 2014 title, disappeared into the Newcastle night, when in their previous outing, England ran in 10 tries in completely demolishing the young Welsh side. But head coach, Byron Hayward, is confident that his charges will produce a much better performance when they take on their Scottish counterparts at the Parc Eirias on Friday.

Wales Under 20s campaign started in very promising fashion, as they defeated Italy and Ireland in their first two fixtures, but the wheels came off with successive defeats to France and England. Though undoubtedly the 67-7 defeat by England was the result that has really struck at the heart of Hayward and his coaching team. Hayward has responded to that result, by making four personal and two positional changes to the side, as he bids to end the season on a high note, with one eye on this summer's World Championship in New Zealand.

The changes to the forwards, see flanker Olly Cracknell make his Under-20s debut, and hooker Scott Otten make his first start of the season, and Will coming in at open side flank.

Wales is in the same boat as Italy and Scotland, without a win to their name and zero points on the board right now. England and Ireland both have two points because they won their first, and in fact their only game played so far.
