Head coach Warren Gatland has named his Wales team for this weekend’s Rugby World Cup warm-up clash with rivals England at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Gatland has made three changes to the side that were defeated by England at Twickenham last time round with all three coming as a result of injury.
Dan Biggar comes into the starting line-up after Gareth Anscombe suffered a devastating ACL injury that has ruled him out the World Cup in Japan later this year.
Adam Beard and Justin Tipuric picked up niggles at Twickenham and have been replaced by Jake Ball and James Davies in the starting lineup.
Wales: Liam Williams; George North, Jonathan Davies, Hadleigh Parkes, Josh Adams; Dan Biggar, Gareth Davies; Nicky Smith, Ken Owens, Tomas Francis; Jake Ball, Alun Wyn Jones (C); Aaron Wainwright, James Davies, Ross Moriarty.
Replacements: Elliot Dee, Wyn Jones, Dillon Lewis, Aaron Shingler, Josh Navidi, Aled Davies, Jarrod Evans, Owen Watkin.
