Cardiff Rugby prop Dillon Lewis has been called up to start in Wales’ Test against Argentina at Principality Stadium on Saturday.
Lewis’ inclusion means there are six EPCR Challenge Cup players in the Wales XV, with fellow Cardiff men Tomos Williams and Taulupe Faletau keeping their places at scrum-half and No.8 respectively.
Dragons wing Rio Dyer will look to add to his debut try last weekend, with clubmate Will Rowlands continuing at lock while Scarlets’ Ken Owens starts again at hooker.
Argentina are unchanged from last Sunday’s 30-29 win over England, with Benetton Rugby prop Thomas Gallo and Stade Français Paris flanker Marcos Kremer starting and the centre partnership of USAP’s Jerónimo de la Fuente and Newcastle Falcons’ Matías Moroni retained.
Meanwhile, Italy have called up Benetton trio Sebastian Blacks, Niccolò Cannone and Gianmarco Lucchesi to start in their Test against Australia at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Saturday.
Benetton, who travel to Stade Français Paris in their EPCR Challenge Cup Pool B opener on December 9, now have eight representatives in Italy’s starting team.
Juan Ignacio Brex is at outside centre, with Lorenzo Cannone at No.8, Michele Lamaro at flanker, Federico Ruzza at lock and Simone Ferrari at prop. Zebre Parma’s Pierre Bruno is on the wing.
Elsewhere, RC Toulon wing Jiuta Wainiqolo, who scored a superb try against Saracens in last season’s EPCR Challenge Cup semi-finals, has been recalled by Fiji along with CA Brive full-back for Setareki Tuicuvu for their game against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday
