Wales have swapped in two back-rowers for their match against Fiji at the World Cup, with James Davies and Ross Moriarty starting ahead of Justin Tipuric and Aaron Wainwright.

Warren Gatland is forward planning for later in the tournament – the flankers he has left out are not injured, but the Wales boss is keen to see Davies play having not featured since August 31 against Ireland where he only lasted 51 minutes.

If Tipuric were to go down injured then Davies would have to slot in as the next out-and-out openside flanker.
