Same again for Wales

Wales have kept faith with the starting XV that defeated France for Saturday's RBS Six Nations showdown with England at Twickenham.

Rob Evans, Scott Baldwin and Samson Lee are named in the front row for the fourth consecutive RBS Six Nations match, while Bradley Davies and Alun Wyn Jones continue their partnership in the second row. Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton and Taulupe Faletau complete the pack.

It's as you were in the back three with Liam Williams starting at full-back and George North and Alex Cuthbert named on the wings.

Gareth Davies and Dan Biggar continue at half-back with Jamie Roberts partnering Jonathan Davies in midfield.

"We've named a pretty experienced side for Saturday, no changes in the starting team, I thought they did pretty well against France and we are looking for them to do a job for us this weekend,” said Wales head coach Warren Gatland.

"We have a couple of guys back from injury on the bench, Luke Charteris, Paul James and Rhys Webb and that is a bonus.

"There is a huge amount to play for on Saturday and it will go a long way to deciding the Six Nations.

"We are happy with the blend of our side. We have a very experienced back five in the pack, blended with the youth up from and that balance is really pleasing.”

"It's great to have Rhys back in the squad. He has been training really hard and brings a lot of energy and experience to the team.”

Wales (XV v England): L Williams; A Cuthbert, J Davies, J Roberts, G North; D Biggar, G Davies; R Evans, S Baldwin, S Lee, B Davies, A-W Jones, D Lydiate, S Warburton, T Faletau.

Replacements: K Owens, P James, T Francis, L Charteris, J Tipuric, R Webb, R Priestland, G Anscombe.
