Edimburgo – Vern Cotter ha annunciato la squadra che sabato al BT Murrayfield sfiderà il Galles (kick off 2.25pm).

Detto di John Barclay capitano, che parte blindside, sapevamo che Cotter era costretto a scegliere un nuovo numero 8 e 9, per le assenze di Strauss e Laidlaw.

L’head coach affida la maglia numero 8 a Ryan Wilson, inserendo openside flanker il recuperato John Hardie – al posto del compagno di squadra ad Edinburgh, Hamish Watson, che siederà in panchina. Cambio anche in prima linea, con Gordon Reid pilone sinistro al posto di Alan Dell.

Il ballottaggio per la maglia numero 9 viene vinto da Ali Price, con Henry Pyrgos in panchina, mentre Sean Maitland, che era stato inserito tra i recuperati dopo l’infortunio rimediato con la maglia dei Saracens lo scorso weekend, viene invece sostituito da Tim Visser.
