Head coach Warren Gatland has made six changes to the Wales team for Saturday's Guinness Six Nations clash against France in Paris.
Louis Rees-Zammit replaces full-back Liam Williams, who suffered a shoulder injury during the 29-17 victory over Italy last weekend, while there are also starts for centres George North and Nick Tompkins, plus fly-half Dan Biggar, lock Alun Wyn Jones and flanker Aaron Wainwright.
North and Tompkins are preferred to Wales’ inexperienced midfield combination of Mason Grady and Joe Hawkins, with Biggar replacing Owen Williams and Jones starting instead of Dafydd Jenkins.
Wainwright takes over from Jac Morgan, who suffered an ankle injury in training.
Number 8 Taulupe Faletau will win his 100th cap, joining fellow Welsh centurions Jones, North, Biggar, Gethin Jenkins, Stephen Jones, Gareth Thomas and Martyn Williams.
Hosts France have made two changes from the side that thumped England at Twickenham, with both coming in the pack.
Uini Atonio returns from his suspension to go straight back into the starting team at tighthead, while Dorian Aldegheri drops out of the matchday 23 entirely.
Packing down behind Atonio will be Toulon lock Romain Taofifenua, who partners Thibaut Flament in the second row after injury ruled out Paul Willemse.
