Wayne Pivac has a Six Nations selection headache for England clash
Wales head into Triple Crown clash against England stacked with options as Josh Adams, Jonathan Davies, Josh Navidi and Johnny Williams return to training, giving Wayne Pivac a Six Nations selection headache
- Wales boss Wayne Pivac is set for selection headache ahead of England game
- Several key men are ready to return after injuries and bans for February 27 clash
- George North is expected to return from his foot problem to play his 100th cap
Wayne Pivac is set for a selection headache ahead of the England game with several key men ready to return after injuries and bans.
Josh Adams, who missed the first two Six Nations matches after he was suspended for breaking Covid rules, was joined by Jonathan Davies, Josh Navidi and Johnny Williams at Welsh training in a boost to Pivac’s resources.
Sportsmail understands that wing sensation Louis Rees-Zammit is to play a part for Gloucester against Bath in the Premiership on Friday night, so Pivac will hope he does not pick up a knock.

Cherry & White coach George Skivington said on Rees-Zammit: ‘The first thing he said was “let’s get into Bath and try and win on Friday night.” That’s a credit to him.’
George North is expected to return from his foot problem to play his 100th cap against England too, so suddenly unbeaten Wales go into their Triple Crown game against England stacked with options.
Pivac will need to weigh up whether Leigh Halfpenny is ready, having been concussed against Scotland, and whether to hand Murrayfield debutant Willis Halaholo a shot ahead of the returning Davies.
Meanwhile William Servat, the France assistant coach, became the third staff member to test positive for Covid in the French camp. He has no symptoms yet and all players are negative.
