Sheedy to start against Italy, Lloyd on bench

Callum Sheedy will make his second international start and Ioan Lloyd is in line to win his second cap from the bench when Wales take on Italy at Parc y Scarlets in the final round of the Autumn Nations Cup on Saturday (4.45pm KO, live on Amazon Prime/S4C).

“Saturday is another opportunity for these players and for us as a squad it is another opportunity to continue to build and to see the results of all the hard work in training,” said head coach Wayne Pivac.

“We have blooded eight new caps this campaign and importantly by the end of the match each of them would have had a number of appearances to their name.

“From the outset we wanted this campaign to be about giving players opportunity and we have done that.

“The hard work in training is coming through and we want to show that again on Saturday and finish the campaign on a high, with the performance and result we want.”

Wales: 15. Liam Williams, 14. Josh Adams, 13. George North, 12. Johnny Williams, 11. Louis Rees-Zammit, 10. Callum Sheedy, 9. Kieran Hardy, 1. Nicky Smith, 2. Sam Parry, 3. Tomas Francis, 4. Will Rowlands, 5. Alun Wyn Jones (capt), 6. James Botham, 7. Justin Tipuric, 8. Taulupe Faletau.

Replacements: 16. Elliot Dee, 17. Wyn Jones, 18. Leon Brown, 19. Cory Hill, 20. Aaron Wainwright, 21. Gareth Davies, 22. Ioan Lloyd, 23. Jonah Holmes.
