SCOTLAND Women’s coach Karen Findlay has named her team for the third home fixture of this season’s Six Nations tournament against Wales at Scotstoun on Sunday.

There are only two changes from the side against Ireland last month, Laura Steven at inside centre for Lisa Ritchie, who moves to the bench and lock Bridget Millar-Mills starting in place of the injured Becca Parker. Winger Lauren Harris and hooker Lindsey Smith are on the bench. Findlay said: “The match is a crucial game for us. It will, as always against Wales, be a physical contest. Italy and Ireland were steps in the right direction and it’s about time the team got its deserved break.”

Scotland: Steph Johnston (RHC Cougars), Annabel Sergeant (Richmond), Sarah Dixon (RHC Cougars), Laura Steven (Murrayfield Wanderers), Megan Gaffney (Hillhead Jordanhill), Tanya Griffith (RHC Cougars), Louise Dalgliesh (RHC Cougars), Heather Lockhart (Hillhead Jordanhill), Sarah Quick (Murrayfield 
Wanderers), Tracy Balmer (Worcester), Lindsay Wheeler (Richmond), Bridget Millar-Mills (Worcester), Jade Konkel (Hillhead Jordanhill), Tess Forsberg (Richmond), Susie Brown (c) (Richmond). Subs: Beth Dickens (Murrayfield Wanderers), Suzanne McKerlie-Hex (Murrayfield Wanderers), Lindsey Smith (Hillhead Jordanhill), Kelly Shields (Murrayfield Wanderers), Sarah Law (Murrayfield Wanderers), Lisa Ritchie (Carlisle), Leanne Neary (RHC Cougars), Lauren Harris (Melrose).
