Wales make three changes to face France

Jonathan Davies and Jamie Roberts

Jonathan Davies and Jamie Roberts are Wales’ record centre partners

Jonathan Davies is fit for Friday’s Six Nations game with France as Wales recall wing Alex Cuthbert and forwards Dan Lydiate and Bradley Davies.

Lions centre Davies has recovered from a hip injury sustained in Wales’ win over Scotland while Tom James is replaced by Cuthbert.

Lydiate replaces Justin Tipuric as blindside flanker as Bradley Davies is in for injured lock Luke Charteris.

Bath fly-half Rhys Priestland is fit to be among Wales’ replacements.

Of Wales coach Warren Gatland’s three changes, only one is enforced as Racing lock Charteris has a knee injury as Blues wing James is dropped from the matchday squad for Blues team-mate Cuthbert.
