The Welsh trio, Tomas Francis, Josh Adams and Aaron Wainwright, named in the starting XV to face Australia

The Welsh trio, Tomas Francis, Josh Adams and Aaron Wainwright, passed the FIT and were named in the starting XV to face Australia on Saturday in a major fitness boost for head coach Wayne Pivac.

  • Tomas Francis has approved concussion protocols to be in a position to start with a closed head
  • Josh Adams is on the wing for Wales, with Aaron Wainwright at number eight
  • Wales look to build on momentum after beating Fiji last weekend

Wales’ injury crisis is not as bad as initially feared, with Tomas Francis, Josh Adams and Aaron Wainwright set to start against Australia.

The trio had concussions, calf and shoulder problems, respectively, and it was feared that they would all miss the Wallabies test on Saturday.

But they have been declared fit and they all start at the Principality Stadium in the last autumn game.

With Francis, it means Wales’ nightmare scenario of having to wear the Wyn Jones loose head while avoiding tight head coverage. Jones starts off on a loose head with Dillon Lewis and Gareth Thomas as bench options.

Adams is back on the wing, as Uilisi Halaholo starts in center with Nick Tompkins, and Seb Davies enters the second row in place of the shocked Will Rowlands.

However, there is no room for Jonathan Davies, so Ellis Jenkins is the captain.

“It has been a difficult season but one in which we have exposed more players to this level of rugby, which bodes well for the future,” said Wales manager Wayne Pivac.

“With the injuries we have faced, we have had to adapt and those are opportunities that some of the players have taken very good advantage of.”

Wales went 13 games without a win against Australia, but then beat them 9-6 in the fall of 2019 and then 29-23 at the next World Cup. The Wallabies do not have captain Michael Hooper and have already lost to Scotland and England on their tour.

“Australia has been on the road for a while, the series they had in the South and a couple of losses in the last two games,” Pivac said.

‘They will be suffering from it and they will want to end their tour on a high note, as we would like to end our campaign on a high note. It bodes well for a rather interesting accessory.

“Dave Rennie brings a physical focus to the game and we certainly expect that from the Australians, but we have to be able to match that and prevail in the game. I think it will be an exciting meeting and a great way to end a series. We are looking forward to Saturday.

This week I would encourage [the crowd] To be even louder, and louder, and back the boys. They’ve worked really hard, so to have that 16th man, if you want, really push and lead the team, we’d really appreciate it a lot. ‘
