Strong Wales Side To Face The Boks

Wales head coach Warren Gatland has named the Wales XV to face Springboks away at Twickenham Stadium in the Qatar Airways Cup on Saturday.

Hooker Dewi Lake will captain the side for this match. Scrum-half Ellis Bevan is set to make his senior international debut on Saturday, becoming the 1,203rd men’s player to represent Wales.

Joining Lake in the front row are Gareth Thomas (loose-head prop) and Henry Thomas (tight-head prop). Dragons’ duo Matthew Screech and Ben Carter are selected in the second row.

There are three possible debutants among Wales’ replacements for the match. Joining Eddie James and Jacob Beetham on the bench is the uncapped James Ratti (Ospreys) who was called up to the squad this morning. Able to cover second row and across the back row, Ratti – like James and Beetham – would win his first senior international cap if called on as a replacement this weekend.
