Warburton returns for Wales
21 Feb 2012
Sam Warburton has recovered from a dead leg and will lead Wales in their crunch Six Nations match against England.
Warburton is one of three changes to the side that beat Scotland two weeks ago. Lock Alun Wyn Jones replaces Ryan Jones while Ken Owens is brought into the team because of injuries to the frontline hookers.
The backline remains unchanged with the good news that George North has been cleared of an ankle injury.
A win for Wales would see them claiming a Triple Crown and edging closer to a Six Nations title.
Wales - 15 Leigh Halfpenny; 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 George North; 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Michael Phillips; 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (c), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Ian Evans, 4 Alun Wyn Jones, 3 Adam Jones, 2 Ken Owens, 1 Gethin Jenkins.
Subs: 16 Richard Hibbard, 17 Paul James, 18 Ryan Jones, 19 Justin Tipuric, 20 Lloyd Williams, 21 James Hook, 22 Scott Williams.
