George North to face England at Twickenham

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints wing George North has been named in Warren Gatland’s starting XV to play England at Twickenham on Sunday.

The match could see North come up against five of his Saints team mates, as Teimana Harrison makes his Test debut with Luther Burrell, Courtney Lawes and Dylan Hartley also starting and Paul Hill named among the replacements. 

Dan Lydiate leads Wales in the absence of Sam Warburton who misses out with a shoulder injury.

“It will be an important hit-out for both teams and as ever it will be an important Test match as it's England v Wales at Twickenham,” said Warren Gatland, Wales’ head coach.

"There is a lot of continuity in our squad and a great amount of experience and that is going to be vital over the next five weeks."

Kick off at HQ is 3pm and you can watch live on Sky Sports 3.
