Scotland star Huw Jones is hoping to spring a surprise on Wales in Six Nations
The Edinburgh-born centre, who plays his club rugby for South African Super Rugby franchise the Stormers, is relishing his first Six Nations campaign.
While the majority of his Dark Blues team-mates will be familiar with Rob Howley's squad from their Guinness PRO12 clashes, Jones is stepping into the unknown this weekend, but the 23-year-old hopes it will be the Welsh who will be left scratching their heads at full-time.

"I see the fact I haven't played against most of these guys as an advantage as well as a disadvantage," he said. "I might not know what to expect from them, but they don't know what to expect from me too.
"Once you're out on the field it's not so much the analysis that goes through your head anyway but more the actual situation there and then.
"I'm all for a bit of analysis but at the end of the day you can't always predict what someone will come up with off the cuff, so you don't want to get it in your head they are going to play a certain way in case they do catch you off guard."
Jones expects Wales to target the Scottish scrum, which has creaked during both their opening-day win over Ireland and the loss in Paris.
But he stressed: "The main focus is on ourselves. I don't think we played to our full potential in either of our two games so far.
"It was nice to win against Ireland but we were gutted with the France result so we really need to step it up. We want to be going forward and improve on those two performances."
