Wales hooker Richard Hibbard believes his retained team-mates owe head coach Warren Gatland a big performance against Scotland on Sunday.

The 31-year-old, who was part of the starting side that lost to England last week, knows a much-improved showing is required at Murrayfield.

Only one change has been made to the team as Liam Williams comes in for George North, with Hibbard determined to impress against the Scots.

"I think we owe him that for giving us a second chance," he told BBC Sport.

"We've let ourselves down and let a lot of people down at the weekend losing to England, especially at home.

"To get a second chance, it's a great opportunity."

He added: "We know we've got to push on."

"We know it's going to be a tough Test. We've really got to bring our A-game."
