Davies back at 9 for Wales

Wales have made two changes to their starting XV to face France in Cardiff on Saturday, with Gareth Davies and Ross Moriarty coming into the side.

Davies will line up at halfback alongside Dan Biggar in the only change in the backline. Hadleigh Parkes and Nick Tompkins partner in the midfield with Josh Adams, George North and Leigh Halfpenny comprising the back three.

Moriarty comes into the side at blindside flank to set up an all British & Irish Lions back row. Jake Ball and captain Alun Wyn Jones continue as the lock pairing, with Wyn Jones, Ken Owens and Dillon Lewis named in the front row.
