Wales team to play England | 2020 Six Nations

Wales have made four changes to their starting XV to play England at Twickenham on Saturday (16.45).

Liam Williams and Josh Navidi return from injury to make their first appearances in Wales’ 2020 Guinness Six Nations campaign with Tomos Williams and Rob Evans also both named in the starting side.

Liam Williams comes into a hugely experienced back-three alongside fellow British & Irish Lions George North and Leigh Halfpenny.

Hadleigh Parkes and Nick Tompkins continue their partnership in midfield with Dan Biggar lining up alongside Tomos Williams at half-back.

Evans comes into the front-row, making his first start for Wales since the 2019 edition of the tournament and he will pack down alongside Ken Owens and Dillon Lewis in the front-row.

Jake Ball and captain Alun Wyn Jones partner again in the second-row, with Jones setting another Welsh record by becoming his country’s most capped player in the Six Nations with 57. In the back-row Navidi comes in to link up with Ross Moriarty and Justin Tipuric.
