Experienced Wales duo Elinor Snowsill and Sioned Harries go straight from a Sevens tournament in Australia to playing in the Women's Six Nations against England on Saturday.

Snowsill and Harries were in the Wales squad at the Super 7s tournament in Brisbane.

Harries is back as coach Rowland Phillips makes three personnel changes after beating Scotland 18-17.

Snowsill replaces Jodie Evans and Natalia John makes way up front.

Rhiannon Parker takes over at scrum-half from Jade Knight while Harries' return means Siwan Lillicrap moving to lock at John's expense.

Utility back Hannah Jones, who was also in Brisbane, is back in the matchday squad on the bench as tournament favourites England await in London.

Phillips said: "England are a strong and settled team, who have already made a statement with a powerful, impressive win in Italy, but we need to focus on our game and build on a promising performance in Colwyn Bay.

"It's up to us to learn from past experiences and show that we can continue to grow as a team.

"It'll be a step up again for us this weekend at the Stoop. We know that. We're really excited for the challenge and that's been reflected in the way we've trained this week."
