Wales travel to Twickenham as favourites to beat an injury-hit England in their World Cup warm-up and move to the top of the world rankings.

Coach Warren Gatland has picked a strong team featuring 13 starters from Wales’ Grand Slam-clinching victory over Ireland in March.

England’s experimental starting XV, rejigged after a trio of late injuries, have 390 caps compared to Wales’ 676.

Wales have won their last 14 Tests, a run that goes back to February 2018.

  • Wales top of provisional world rankings

  • Australia thrash All Blacks

If they extend their streak to 15 against their oldest rivals, or even draw, they will overtake New Zealand when the world rankings are published on Monday.

The All Blacks suffered a heavy defeat against trans-Tasman rivals Australia on Saturday.

History repeating?

As the teams meet in their first warm-up match before Japan 2019, Wales will be aiming for a first win at Twickenham since their famous pool-stage success in the previous World Cup.

Seven of Wales’ starting XV on Sunday were involved in the dramatic 28-25 win that derailed hosts England’s campaign.
