Wales have made two changes to the side to face England in the RBS 6 Nations at Twickenham on Sunday (KO 15.00) with British and Irish Lions duo Jonathan Davies and Alun Wyn Jones returning to the starting line-up.
Davies returns from injury to reunite Wales’ most capped centre pairing as he lines up alongside Jamie Roberts.
The only change in pack, from the victory against France, sees Jones return to the engine room after missing the Millennium Stadium clash with a foot infection. He partners Luke Charteris behind an all-Lions front-row of Gethin Jenkins, Richard Hibbard and Adam Jones, with Scarlets lock Jake Ball moving to the bench. The back-row remains unchanged with captain Sam Warburton featuring alongside Dan Lydiate and Taulupe Faletau.
Rhys Webb and Rhys Priestland continue their partnership at half-back.
There is one positional change in the back-line with George North returning to the wing from centre, in place of Scarlets back Liam Williams who provides cover from the bench. North lines up alongside Cardiff Blues pair Alex Cuthbert and Leigh Halfpenny in the back three.
UPDATE: Luke Charteris has been ruled out with a neck injury; Jake Ball starts and Andrew Coombs comes onto the bench.
