Wales Under 20 head coach Phil Davies has kept faith with the side that faced England last Friday for his side's first home fixture of the Under 20 Six Nations, against Scotland at Cardiff Arms Park (Friday, 7.10pm).
There is just one enforced change in the starting line-up with lock James King ruled out of the rest of the Championship after sustaining a knee injury in the 41-14 defeat to England. He will be replaced in the starting line-up by fellow Ospreys and Aberavon lock Lloyd Peers with Dragons and Ebbw Vale flanker Rhys Jenkins coming onto the replacements bench along with prop Rhodri Jones and outside half Steve Shingler who replace fellow Scarlets Trystan Davies and Lee Rees respectively.
Davies said, "We were pleased with the character of the team against England and it is important to keep continuity in selection in order to build a team performance.
"We need to build on the performance we produced in the first half against England and play strongly for eighty minutes. We lost narrowly to Scotland last season but a lot of our players would have taken a lot from that game and progressed a great deal in the past year.
"We have been working hard in training this week and we will be looking for players to show an ability to recognise running opportunities in attack and a strong defensive display."
