Sarah Bern, Lark Davies and Abbie Ward start, whilst Bristol-born Amber Reed will look to make an impact off the bench.

The fixture is the final mach for both sides ahead of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

The Red Roses Head coach, Simon Middleton, said: “We always said we’d work with a number of players across the two matches and that’s what we’ve done. This is another opportunity for players to perform and show what they can do. This game is about building form, synergy and confidence.

“It’s been a poignant and significant week for the nation. We as a Red Roses player and staff group are privileged to have the chance to pay our respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at this fixture and to acknowledge her 70 years of duty. It’s fitting this fixture falls against Wales and I’m sure Ioan (Cunningham)and his staff will, like us, want to put on a performance that would have made Her Majesty proud in front of a British crowd.”

The match kicks off at 7.30pm and will be live on ITV and ITV Hub.
