Sam Warburton will return from injury to captain Wales in their Six Nations match against England on Saturday.

The Cardiff flanker missed his country’s 27-13 win over Scotland with a thigh problem.

But Warburton has now recovered and is one of three changes to the starting line-up.

The 23-year old replaces Aaron Shingler in the back row, while Ken Owens and Alun-Wyn Jones start at hooker and lock respectively.

Wales’ back-line is unchanged for the third successive Six Nations match.

Wales team to play England in Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations clash at Twickenham (1600 kick-off):

L Halfpenny (Cardiff Blues); A Cuthbert (Cardiff Blues), J Davies (Scarlets), J Roberts (Cardiff Blues), G North (Scarlets); R Priestland (Scarlets), M Phillips (Bayonne); G Jenkins (Cardiff Blues), K Owens (Scarlets), A Jones (Ospreys), A-W Jones (Ospreys), I Evans (Ospreys), D Lydiate (Newport Gwent Dragons), S Warburton (Cardiff Blues, capt), T Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons). Replacements: R Hibbard (Ospreys), P James (Ospreys), R Jones (Ospreys), J Tipuric (Ospreys), L Williams (Cardiff Blues), J Hook (Perpignan), S Williams (Scarlets).
