Evans cleared for Wales clash

Scotland wing Max Evans has passed a fitness test and will play against Wales on Saturday.

Coach Scott Johnson had delayed the naming of his squad to allow for Evans and Tommy Seymour to come through their respective fitness tests. Evans will start at the Millennium Stadium this weekend, but Seymour has not recovered sufficiently and will be replaced by debutant Doug Fife.

The only other change to the starting XV sees Ryan Wilson coming in for Johnnie Beattie on the flank.

Scotland – 15 Stuart Hogg, 14 Doug Fife, 13 Alex Dunbar, 12 Matt Scott, 11 Max Evans, 10 Duncan Weir, 9 Greig Laidlaw, 8 Dave Denton, 7 Kelly Brown (c), 6 Ryan Wilson, 5 Jim Hamilton, 4 Richie Gray, 3 Geoff Cross, 2 Scott Lawson, 1 Ryan Grant.
Subs: 16 Ross Ford, 17 Al Dickinson, 18 Euan Murray, 19 Tim Swinson, 20 Alisdair Strokosch, 21 Chris Cusiter, 22 Duncan Taylor, 23 Jack Cuthbert.
