Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Wales have named George North in the starting line-up to face Australia in the opening Under Armour Series clash on Saturday.

North is the third most capped player in the side, behind only Wales’ most capped player of all time and captain Gethin Jenkins and fellow Aviva Premiership player Jamie Roberts. Full back Leigh Halfpenny also lines up in the starting fifteen for the first time since September 2015.

Wales have also named two uncapped players on the bench in the form of Newport Gwent Dragon’s Cory Hill and Ospreys’ Sam Davies.

Wales take on the Wallabies at the Millenium Stadium at 2:30pm on Saturday.
