THE former Worcester Warriors duo of Ollie Lawrence and Owen Williams will be on opposing sides this weekend when Wales host England in the 2023 Six Nations. 

Williams will start at fly-half for Wales in a test for the first time in his career on Saturday afternoon when a wounded Welsh side welcome Steve Borthwick's England to Cardiff in Round Three of the tournament. 

Having lost both of their opening games, Warren Gatland's Wales will be hoping to upset the odds against an England side looking to build on their 31-14 win over Italy.

And it will be a familiar face lining up opposite Williams as Lawrence is handed a second start in a row at inside-centre for England. 

Lawrence was named man of the match in the bonus-point victory over the Italians and has been in brilliant form for new club Bath following his forced exit from Worcester.

As for Williams, he has also impressed at a new club after having to take leave from Sixways due to the club going into administration. 

He has become the first-choice number 10 for Ospreys after years of playing inside centre.

That is actually where Williams, 30, had won his previous three caps before coming off the bench in Wales' defeat to Ireland in round one. And now, after nearly six years, Williams will start for Wales, where he will be hoping to inspire a young side to victory over arch-rivals England.
