Davies in timely return for Dragons

Centre Jonathan Davies will start for Wales against England at Twickenham on Sunday.

This Six Nations game will mark Davies's first appearance since he sustained a torn pectoral muscle against South Africa last November. Wales will be hoping that the talented No 13 can produce the same form that proved so influential for the Dragons in the 2013 Six Nations, as well as the British & Irish Lions on their successful tour of Australia.

Davies's return sees George North moving back to the wing after a brief run at centre. Liam Williams drops to the bench.

Wales coach Warren Gatland has made one other change to the starting side, with Alun Wyn Jones returning to the second row.

England will name their team on Friday.

Wales – 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Rhys Webb, 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (c), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Alun Wyn Jones, 4 Luke Charteris, 3 Adam Jones, 2 Richard Hibbard, 1 Gethin Jenkins.
Subs: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Paul James, 18 Rhodri Jones, 19 Jake Ball, 20 Justin Tipuric, 21 Mike Phillips, 22 Dan Biggar, 23 Liam Williams
