The Wales team to play England as Warren Gatland names his XV

The Wales team to play England in their second match of the 2018 Six Nations has been named by head coach Warren Gatland. 

There is just one change amongst the replacements with British & Irish Lion George North returning to wear jersey 23.

Leigh Halfpenny, who scored two tries as part of his 24-point haul against the Scots, lines up again alongside Josh Adams and Steff Evans in the back-three.

Hadleigh Parkes and Scott Williams continue their partnership in the midfield with Gareth Davies and Rhys Patchell the half-backs.

It is an all-Scarlet front-row once again with Rob Evans, Ken Owens and Samson Lee packing down together. Cory Hill partners captain Alun Wyn Jones in the second-row and Man-of-the-Match from last weekend, Aaron Shingler, lines up alongside Josh Navidi and Ross Moriarty in the back-row.
