Chris Paterson will become the first Scot to reach the landmark of 100 caps for his country after he was named today in the Scotland team to play Wales in the RBS 6 Nations Championship in Cardiff on Saturday.
The team shows three changes in personnel from that defeated by France at the weekend. Euan Murray, who missed Sunday's match because of his religious faith, returns at tight-head prop for Moray Low; Dan Parks is preferred to Phil Godman at stand-off; and Rory Lamont is back from injury and will line-up on the left wing.
This necessitates a positional switch with Sean Lamont moving to outside centre in place of Max Evans.
Scotland head coach Andy Robinson congratulated Paterson. He said: "He has been a fantastic ambassador for the team and it's a tremendous honour for him to win his 100th cap. It's well-deserved and I'm looking forward to seeing him perform at the weekend."
Robinson added: "I'm pleased to welcome Dan back. He comes in after playing consistently well for Glasgow."
