Three changes for Wales
Written by Jamie on 23rd February 2016
Wales have made three changes for their side to face France at Principality Stadium on Friday (KO 20:05).
Alex Cuthbert, Bradley Davies and Dan Lydiate are all named in the starting XV as Wales look to continue their unbeaten run in the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.
“We have made a couple of changes, one injury enforced with Luke (Charteris) missing out with a knee injury, but Bradley (Davies) deserves a starting spot as well so it’s a good opportunity for him.
“We have made two other personnel changes with Alex (Cuthbert) and Dan (Lydiate) coming into the starting team. They have trained well and will suit the game France will potentially bring as well.
Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland.
