Cardiff - Wales head coach Warren Gatland on Tuesday named an unchanged team for Saturday's potential Six Nations title decider against England at Twickenham.

Gatland has kept faith with the same XV that started the 19-10 home win over France on February 26, which left Wales a point below leaders England with two games remaining.

The only changes to the Welsh match-day squad affect the bench, with prop Paul James, lock Luke Charteris and scrumhalf Rhys Webb coming in to replace Gethin Jenkins, Jake Ball and Lloyd Williams.

"We've named a pretty experienced side for Saturday, no changes in the starting team," Gatland said in a Welsh Rugby Union press release.

"I thought they did pretty well against France and we are looking for them to do a job for us this weekend."





15 Liam Williams, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Dan Biggar, 9 Gareth Davies, 8 Taulupe Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (c), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Alun Wyn Jones, 4 Bradley Davies, 3 Samson Lee, 2 Scott Baldwin, 1 Rob Evans

Subtitutes: 16 Ken Owens, 17 Paul James, 18 Tomas Francis, 19 Luke Charteris, 20 Justin Tipuric, 21 Rhys Webb, 22 Rhys Priestland, 23 Gareth Anscombe
