Fife to win first cap against Wales

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -- Dougie Fife will win his first cap against Wales in the Six Nations as Scotland made three changes to its starting XV for Saturday's game at the Millennium Stadium.

The 23-year-old Edinburgh winger replaces the injured Tommy Seymour on the right flank while Max Evans comes in for Sean Lamont on the opposite side.

Fife will become the second new cap of Scotland's campaign after Chris Fusaro also made his debut in this year's tournament.

Scotland head coach Scott Johnson said "we like Dougie's size and his competitive edge. He chases everything, which I like, and he has shown really good glimpses playing for Edinburgh this season."

Injured flanker Johnnie Beattie is also replaced by Ryan Wilson.
