See how the defending champions will take the field in the first game of the series.
Sam Warburton will start on the bench for Wales as they look to win the Six Nations Championship for the third time in a row, with the title holders taking on Italy this weekend.
Warburton has not full recovered from a shoulder injury picked up while on tour with the British and Irish Lions, and leading the side in his place will be lock Alun Wyn Jones.
Justin Tipuric takes Warburton’s place at open-side with Rhys Priestland picked at fly-half.
Prop Gethin Jenkins is rested, Ryan Jones (hamstring) is missing through injury, while lock Ian Evans is banned.
Paul James is selected at loose-head in Jenkins’ absence with Luke Charteris named in the second row in place of Evans.
Coach Warren Gatland said Jenkins – who has been recovering from a knee injury – was fit enough to play but would benefit from another week’s rest.
Warburton has not played a game since injuring a shoulder in the match against Australia on 30 November last year.
Gatland has been encouraged by the flanker’s progress in training, but has opted to start with Ospreys’ in-form Tipuric.
Jones – who led the British and Irish Lions in the third Test against Australia in 2013 after Warburton was ruled out with injury – was the natural choice to take over the captaincy as Wales aim for an unprecedented third successive title.
