Six Nations 2024: Warren Gatland makes seven Wales changes to face England


George North returns from injury to play for Wales against England at Twickenham on Saturday as one of seven changes to the team beaten by Scotland.


The fit-again centre will be making his 50th Six Nations appearance.


Ioan Lloyd and Tomos Williams, who helped spark last weekend's comeback in the 27-26 defeat by Scotland, are rewarded with starts.


The entire starting front-row changes with Gareth Thomas, Elliot Dee and Keiron Assiratti all selected.


Flanker Alex Mann, who scored a try against Scotland, gets his first Test start.


Scrum-half Gareth Davies is dropped from the matchday squad while Owen Watkin makes way for North. Sam Costelow (neck), Leon Brown (shoulder) and James Botham (knee) are injured.

Prop Corey Domachowski and hooker Ryan Elias step down to a bench that includes uncapped Bath tight-head prop Archie Griffin.


Cai Evans could also make his Six Nations debut as a replacement and is joined by Dragons team-mate Taine Basham, Scarlets scrum-half Kieran Hardy and lock Will Rowlands, who missed last week following the birth of his child.
