Wales team to play England: 2021 Guinness Six Nations

Kieran Hardy, who has just three caps, starts in the Wales team to play England in Cardiff..

The Scarlets No 9 impressed off the bench in Wales’s round-two win over Scotland. 

George North, who is returning from injury, wins his 100th Wales cap alongside Jonathan Davies at centre with the returning Davies named at 12.  

Liam Williams starts at full-back with Josh Adams and Louis Rees-Zammit on the wings.

“We’ve [almost] got a full squad to choose from, which brings a headache but is also really positive,” said Wales forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys.

“Selection meetings have taken a lot longer than they did a couple of months ago.

“There are some really difficult discussions going on about combinations but that’s very positive. There’s a lot of competition for places.”

1. Shane Williams (Wales)

“Probably pound-for-pound, Shane Wiliams. He had some incredible brilliant attacking attributes,” Gatland said.

“But sometimes Shane could score three tries and let in two. But pound for pound he was unbelievable when he was at his best.”
