Edinburgh - Scotland made two changes to their side for this weekend's Six Nations clash with Wales as they attempt to bounce back from their disappointing Calcutta Cup defeat to England.

Greig Laidlaw steps up to flyhalf following the sudden retirement of Dan Parks on Tuesday while Edinburgh prop Geoff Cross comes in for Euan Murray, whose religious beliefs prevent him from playing on Sundays.

Glasgow Warriors trio Ed Kalman, Duncan Weir and Stuart Hogg all join the replacements bench but coach Andy Robinson resisted the temptation to partner Laidlaw with his Edinburgh scrumhalf partner Mike Blair, with Chris Cusiter retained at No 9.

Teams:

Wales: TBA

Scotland:

15 Rory Lamont (Glasgow Warriors), 14 Lee Jones (Edinburgh), 13 Nick De Luca (Edinburgh), 12 Sean Lamont (Scarlets), 11 Max Evans (Castres), 10 Greig Laidlaw (Edinburgh), 9 Chris Cusiter (Glasgow Warriors), 8 David Denton (Edinburgh), 7 Ross Rennie (Edinburgh), 6 Alasdair Strokosch (Gloucester), 5 Jim Hamilton (Gloucester), 4 Richie Gray (Glasgow Warriors), 3 Geoff Cross (Edinburgh), 2 Ross Ford (captain, Edinburgh), 1 Allan Jacobsen (Edinburgh).

Substitutes: 16 Scott Lawson (Gloucester), 17 Ed Kalman (Glasgow Warriors), 18 Alastair Kellock (Glasgow Warriors), 19 John Barclay (Glasgow Warriors), 20 Mike Blair (Edinburgh), 21 Duncan Weir (Glasgow Warriors), 22 Stuart Hogg (Glasgow Warriors).
