While not named in the fall squad, he was involved in training early on, providing cover – with fellow Blues colleague Josh Navidi recovering from a concussion

There isn’t really much pressure on this game, as Ireland, England and France are all vying for the league on the last day of the campaign

Scotland enter the clash in fourth place with 10 points and Wales are one place behind with seven points

Wales won 42-0 against Italy in March, but then lost to Ireland, France and England, while their clash in Scotland in March was postponed until the 11th hour due to the coronavirus pandemic

Coupled with a 38-21 loss to France last weekend in a warm-up, Wales have lost four matches on the trot and will look to break that streak

As for Scotland, they lost to Ireland and England and beat Italy before a thrilling victory over the French to derail them in their Grand Slam bid Gregor Townsend’s side have then beat Georgia 48-7 last week in a warm-up

Wales coach Wayne Pivac: “Everything is better for the weekend match It was always going to be difficult to get us back into match mode

“We tested the guys when they arrived in the first week Some guys tested really well and others had a little work to do

“Covid has taken its toll in this regard, but everyone is working really hard to try and get to where they need to be

“This game has been great for us in a lot of ways, we have funneled a lot more work into some areas this week than if we hadn’t had this game

“As far as this game goes, you talk about results – it is not lost on us We know we need a good result this weekend and we want a good performance with a win

“It won’t be easy, Scotland are playing well, it would be ridiculous not to prepare for rainy weather and it will put a new spin on a home game”

Scottish coach Gregor Townsend: “It was great to bring quality and experience to our starting lineup with players such as Stuart, Jonny and Finn who have been involved in top level matches in recent weeks

“We were also encouraged by the posting of Blade this weekend for Scarlets, which is a welcome boost given last weekend’s injury to Matt Fagerson

“As a group we are looking forward to finishing our game against Wales and returning to play Guinness Six Nations rugby

“We were very motivated in March and that added benefit has returned to our training and preparations this week

“We expect a physical battle against a very good team, a team that we will work hard on to stay in the fight and finish the fight in Llanelli

“At the end of the day, this game gives us the opportunity to end this extended championship on a positive note and go to the Fall Nations Cup with some confidence in what this group of players can accomplish. “
