Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau is available for Saturday’s match against England in Cardiff
The 26-year-old back-rower has not played since Christmas Eve
Rob Howley is still sweating over the fitness of Dan Biggar and George North
Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau has been announced as fit to play against England this weekend at the Principality Stadium.
The 26-year-old Bath back-rower has not played since Christmas Eve after suffering a knee injury.
Rob Howley is still waiting patiently on the condition of George North and Dan Biggar, who will be given time to prove their fitness after suffering injuries during the 33-7 win in Italy.
Wales defence coach Shaun Edwards suggested that Faletau is likely to play off the bench as he mentioned the difference England centre Ben Te’o made as a substitute for England against France last week.
“Taulupe will be available for selection,” Edwards told the Bath Chronicle.
“Ben Te’o made an impact when he came on for England.
“Games can be decided in the last 20.“
