Leinster lock Hines has not recovered sufficiently from a calf strain picked up during Sunday’s defeat by France. Hamilton was originally not in the 22-man squad named by coach Andy Robinson on Tuesday. However, the Edinburgh 27-year-old comes straight into the starting line-up for the match in Cardiff.

Also back is Euan Murray, whilst Dan Parks replaces Godman in the starting 15.
