North provides Welsh interest for Saints

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Along with France, Warren Gatland’s side are the longest shots to claim the crown, currently 25 back of England on aggregate points difference.

But, with North on the right wing, they’ll have the chance to set the bar early doors when they kick off at 12:30pm in Rome, Scotland versus Ireland to follow in the afternoon (2:30pm) before England’s finale against France (5pm).

Two changes for Wales both come in the front row, Rob Evans and Aaron Jarvis coming in for the injured Gethin Jenkins and Samson Lee.

Action from Stadio Olimpico is live on the BBC.

15 Leigh Halfpenny (Toulon)
