Wales coach Warren Gatland has named an unchanged starting lineup for their highly-anticipated Pool D encounter against the Wallabies in Tokyo on Sunday.
Gatland has opted to reinstate in the same side that took to the field in their opening match against Georgia on Monday, with the only change coming on the bench where Leigh Halfpenny makes way for Owen Watkin.
The selection of captain Alun Wyn Jones will see him become Wales’ all-time leading appearance record holder when he wins his 130th Test cap for his country.
In total, with nine additional British & Irish Lions caps, he moves onto 139 Test appearances, joint fourth on the all-time list and level with former Wallabies captain George Gregan.
Wales: 15 Liam Williams, 14 George North, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Hadleigh Parkes, 11 Josh Adams, 10 Dan Biggar, 9 Gareth Davies, 8 Josh Navidi, 7 Justin Tipuric, 6 Aaron Wainwright, 5 Alun Wyn Jones (c), 4 Jake Ball, 3 Tomas Francis, 2 Ken Owens, 1 Wyn Jones
Subs: 16 Elliot Dee, 17 Nicky Smith, 18 Dillon Lewis, 19 Aaron Shingler, 20 Ross Moriarty, 21 Tomos Williams, 22 Rhys Patchell, 23 Owen Watkin.
