Wales team vs. Italy

Written by on 15th March 2016

Dan Lydiate will lead a Wales side that includes four personnel changes for the clash against Italy this weekend.

Luke Charteris, Justin Tipuric, Rhys Webb and Hallam Amos all come into the starting XV for Wales’ final 2016 RBS 6 Nations encounter.

Amongst the replacements Gethin Jenkins returns to the match day squad along with Jake Ball and Ross Moriarty.

If you’re wondering where Sam Warburton is? He suffered concussion against England and has been given more time to recover.

Kick off on Saturday is at 2.30pm at the Principality Stadium
