Wales u/18 Change 8 For England

 

last-gasp defeat to hosts South Africa Schools on Friday was nonetheless a thrilling way to start their campaign in the Western Cape, with Wales scoring six tries in the process.

Remaining in the forward pack tomorrow are hooker Cameron Lewis, second-row partners Teddy Williams and Jac Price, and openside Jac Morgan - the latter a try-scorer in the last game, who captains the team this time out.

Fullback Ioan Lloyd, wing Louis Rees-Zammit and inside centre Aneurin Owen continue in the backs.

England suffered a defeat of their own in their opening game, losing 41-21 to France. The French may prove to be the team to beat in this year's series, having raced into a 31-0 half-time lead against England on Friday.
