Prop Caryl Thomas will win her 50th Wales cap in this Friday’s Women’s Six Nations match against table-toppers France in Colwyn Bay (18:00).

 

The loosehead from Carmarthenshire made her international debut against Ireland in 2006, and is part of an unchanged front row to face the Grand Slam-chasing French at Stadiwm ZipWorld.

 

Wales’ starting XV is unchanged following Sunday’s Principality Stadium loss to Italy, with nine Scarlets involved. Five players named in Team Wales’ Commonwealth Games sevens squad earlier this week are named in that line-up: fullback Hannah Jones, wing Jaz Joyce, fly-half Elinor Snowsill, flanker Alisha Butchers and number eight Sioned Harries.
