Wales retain the line-up which beat France for Saturday’s Twickenham clash with England

Wales head coach Warren Gatland has named an unchanged team for Saturday’s Six Nations showdown against England at Twickenham.

Gatland retains the starting line-up that beat France 19-10 11 days ago, although there are three changes on the bench.

Scrum-half Rhys Webb, who was called into Wales’ Six Nations squad on Monday following a six-month injury absence from Test rugby, is among the replacements, along with fit-again lock Luke Charteris and prop Paul James.

Ospreys loosehead James takes over from 122 times-capped Gethin Jenkins, who is continuing his recovery from a calf muscle injury.

Wales team to play England: L Williams (Scarlets); A Cuthbert (Cardiff Blues), J Davies (Clermont Auvergne), J Roberts (Harlequins), G North (Northampton); D Biggar (Ospreys), G Davies (Scarlets); R Evans (Scarlets), S Baldwin (Ospreys), S Lee (Scarlets), B Davies (Wasps), A-W Jones (Ospreys), D Lydiate (Ospreys), S Warburton (Cardiff Blues, capt), T Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons)

Replacements: K Owens (Scarlets), P James (Ospreys), T Francis (Exeter), L Charteris (Racing 92), J Tipuric (Ospreys), R Webb (Ospreys), R Priestland (Bath), G Anscombe (Cardiff Blues)
