WING Josh Adams will win his seventh Wales cap in the Guinness Six Nations opener against France at the Stade de France on Friday (8pm).

The Worcester Warriors star made his debut in the Six Nations victory over Scotland in Cardiff 12 months ago and has started in five more internationals since, the most recent against South Africa in the Autumn Internationals in November.

The 23-year-old, who joined Warriors' academy from Scarlets in 2015, has scored three tries in 10 appearances for Worcester this term.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland said: "We are looking forward to kicking off the Six Nations and kicking off our 2019 campaign as a whole.

"We come into the game on an impressive run of results but we know how tough it will be to face France in Paris in the tournament opener.

"It will be a huge contest but we are excited going into it. We have a great deal of experience across the team and on the bench and we want to kick things off well on Friday.”

Wales: L Williams, North, J Davies, Parkes, Adams; Anscombe, T Williams; Evans, Owens, Francis, Beard, AW Jones, Navidi, Tipuric, Moriarty.

Replacements: Dee, W Jones, Lee, Hill, Wainwright, G Davies, Biggar, Watkin.
