Wales received a major boost ahead of their Six Nations opener against England when former skipper Martyn Williams was named in the starting line-up following a neck injury.

The Cardiff flanker will win his 50th cap as a replacement for the injured Colin Charvis, who has been ruled out with a foot injury.

Williams has recovered from disc trouble and is one of three changes to the side edged out by New Zealand in November, with one positional switch that sees Tom Shanklin move from wing to centre as cover for the crocked Sonny Parker.

I'm not sure how the Welsh forwards will stand up to the English, but I do fully expect England to be virtually destroyed in the centre. I doubt Tait on his debut and Noon on only his 6th cap will be able to stand up particularly well against Shanklin and particularly Gavin Henson.
