What is the news of the team?

Wales

Cardiff Blues scrum-half Lloyd Williams will make his first Wales start in four years. And flanker James Botham – grandson of great English cricketer Sir Ian Botham – retains his place in a back row missing Justin Tipuric and Josh Navidi.

Tipuric suffered a blow to the head in the victory over Georgia last weekend, and Navidi remains unavailable as he continues his recovery from a concussion.

Williams, who has won 30 caps, team up with Dan Biggar at half-back, with Botham moving from the blind side to the open side after a promising test start in the Georgia game.

Cardiff-born Botham is joined in the back row by Shane Lewis-Hughes and Taulupe Faletau, and center Jonathan Davies being sidelined with a knee injury Nick Tompkins and Johnny Williams once again forge the combination of midfielder from Wales.

Center Scarlets Williams qualify for Wales thanks to his father, who is from Rhyl. Williams represented England and scored a try in a capless game against the Barbarians last year.

Elsewhere, 19-year-old Gloucester winger Louis Rees-Zammit wins a third tryout, Ryan Elias returns to hooker and captain Alun Wyn Jones is partnered second by Jake Ball, but the full-back Liam Williams is missing.
