WALES boss Warren Gatland has dropped experienced fly-half Stephen Jones and handed the No10 shirt to James Hook for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations trip to Scotland.
Hook switches from full-back, where he played in Friday’s defeat to England, while Jones, who suffered a blow to his neck in that match, has been named on the bench.
“James has a real opportunity,” said Gatland. “There is a certain amount of risk involved as he hasn’t started at fly-half this season, but the decision was made easier [by Jones’ injury].”
Lee Byrne replaces Hook and Ryan Jones comes in at No8 for Andy Powell.
