Cornell du Preez in Scotland squad for Wales clash

Cornell du Preez has been named on the bench for Scotland as they face Wales in the final match of the Six Nations on Saturday (kick-off 2.15pm)

The Warriors back-row will be looking for his 9th international cap after playing over 40 minutes for his country against Georgia last week.

Scotland Coach Gregor Townsend said: “We are expecting a physical battle against a very good side, one which we will be working hard to stay in the fight and to finish the fight in Llanelli. Ultimately, this game provides an opportunity for us to end this extended championship on a positive note and go into the Autumn Nations Cup with some added belief in what this group of players can achieve.”
