Jenkins boost for Wales
10 Feb 2012
Prop Gethin Jenkins returns to Wales’ starting line-up for their Six Nations clash against Scotland on Sunday.
The highly-rated loosehead prop, who missed Wales’ win over Ireland last weekend, replaces Rhys Gill, who drops out of the match-day squad.
Flanker Ryan Jones also moves into the second row after lock Bradley Davies’ ban. With locks Luke Charteris and Alun-Wyn Jones both injured, coach Warren Gatland has decided to pick Jones to partner Ian Evans.
Dan Lydiate takes Jones’ place in the loose trio.
Wales - 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Mike Phillips; 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (c), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Ian Evans, 4 Ryan Jones, 3 Adam Jones, 2 Huw Bennett, 1 Gethin Jenkins.
