Six Nations 2014: Bowen comes in for Wales Women against England

Rhys Edwards

Wales Women's head coach Rhys Edwards has made one personnel and three positional changes for his side's trip to face England Women on Friday.

Maesteg Celtic wing Ffion Bowen comes in and Elen Evans goes to full-back, while Dyddgu Hywel is left out as Wales seek to avoid a fourth successive loss.

Captain Rachel Taylor switches from number eight to lock and Nia Davies moves to open-side from lock.

The reshuffle ends with Sioned Harries going from flanker to number eight.

Evans will be playing in her third different position in three games having been at centre against Ireland and wing against France.
