Cardiff - Wales have called up Ospreys scrumhalf Rhys Webb ahead of Saturday's crunch Six Nations clash with England.

The 27-year-old, who made his comeback from injury for the Ospreys in mid-February, met up with the squad on Monday.

Webb last played for Wales in September 2015, missing the World Cup, and faces a battle to displace in-form incumbent Gareth Davies.

The game at Twickenham pitches England, unbeaten in their opening three games, against a Welsh side a point adrift in second place in the Six Nations table after drawing with Ireland in their opener.

Added spice comes from the fact that England were beaten 28-25 by Warren Gatland's men in last year's World Cup and never recovered as they slumped to an embarrassing pool stage exit on home soil.
