Wales U18 have named their side to face France tomorrow as they aim for a clean sweep of victories in the U19 International Series in South Africa.

 

Wales have beaten South Africa Schools and England so far in two dramatically close games of rugby, 30-28 and 14-12 respectively.

 

They now take on France, who have lost to England and narrowly beaten South Africa Schools. The two sides met earlier in the year, with France coming out on top in a thriller, 46-34, so Wales will be hoping for revenge.

 

Wellington College leaver Dylan Moss comes into the side at full back, and he is one of eleven changes to the side that beat England, including Lennon Greggains, who captains the side from the blindside flank in place of Leicester Tigers’ Tom Reffell, who skippered the side against England.
