Two changes as Wales U20 look to finish U20 Six Nations with winning run intact

Posted by

Wales U20 head coach Gareth Williams has once again kept changes to a minimum as his side look to make it three wins in a row to finish the U20 Six Nations campaign against Scotland U20 on Friday night.

There was just one change to the starting XV that beat France U20 for the trip to Gloucester and England U20 last week, with that reversed again ahead of the final round as Dom Booth returns to the starting hooker spot and Will Griffiths drops back on to the bench.

The other alteration is at full-back where Jacob Beetham is ruled out with the shoulder injury sustained in last week’s fixture, a challenge that earned England U20 full-back Freddie Stewart a four-week ban despite only having received a yellow card on the night.

In his place Ioan Lloyd returns to the Wales U20 squad having spent the time between his last appearance against Ireland U20 and now back at Bristol Bears in the Gallagher Premiership.

Wales U20: Ioan Lloyd, Frankie Jones, Bradley Roderick, Aneurin Owen, Mason Grady, Sam Costelow, Ellis Bevan; Theo Bevacqua, Dom Booth, Ben Warren, James Fender, Ben Carter, Ioan Rhys Davies, Jac Morgan (c), Morgan Strong

Replacements: Will Griffiths, Callum Williams, Harri O’Connor, Ed Scragg, Gwilym Bradley, Dafydd Buckland, Joe Hawkins, Luke Scully
