Head coach Warren Gatland has named his Wales senior men’s XV to play England this Saturday (12 August, KO 5.30pm BST live on Prime Video in English & Cymraeg).
Following last weekend’s encounter in Cardiff, which saw the home side win 20-9, Wales make the trip to Twickenham Stadium for the return fixture with a much-changed line-up.
Uncapped Scarlets centre Joe Roberts will become the 1,192nd men’s player to represent Wales when he takes to the field on Saturday and the 251st Scarlets player to win international honours. Nick Tompkins partners Roberts in the midfield.
Kemsley Mathias has been named as a replacement for the fixture, and also in line to win his first senior Wales caps.
Taine Plumtree who made his debut at Principality Stadium last weekend is selected at No. 8 and Scarlets wing Tom Rogers, who makes his first Wales appearance since July 2021, complete the starting XV.
Kieran Hardy has been named on the bench as back line cover.
