Vastly experienced lock Alun Wyn Jones and centre George North have been recalled by Wales to boost the Ospreys representation to six for their country’s final Six Nations Championship match of the season against France in Paris on Saturday.

Scrum-half Rhys Webb, prop Tomas Francis, lock Adam Beard and flanker Justin Tipuric all retain their places as the Welsh region’s Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 tie at Saracens on April 2 draws closer.

There are also recalls for Saracens centre Nick Tompkins and Gloucester Rugby’s Louis Rees-Zammit, who makes his third start for Wales at full-back.

Rees-Zammit largely plays on the wing for Gloucester, who visit defending champions Stade Rochelais in the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 on April 1.
