Sam Warburton in Heineken Cup action against Edinburgh Rugby
Cardiff Blues openside Sam Warburton returns to captain Wales in one of three changes made to the side which triumphed over Scotland last time out for the RBS 6 Nations third round visit to Twickenham on Saturday.
Ospreys second row Alun Wyn Jones comes straight into the starting line-up against England, after completing his return from a toe injury and will win his 60th cap.
That means last week's captain, Ryan Jones, moves to the bench, with Sale Sharks back row Andy Powell missing out.
Finally, Scarlets hooker Ken Owens makes his first start for his country in place of injured Osprey Huw Bennett (calf). Warburton, who will surely be in action when Cardiff Blues visit the Aviva Stadium for their Heineken Cup quarter-final against defending champions Leinster on Saturday, 7 April, is joined in the line-up by club colleagues Leigh Halfpenny, Alex Cuthbert, Jamie Roberts and Gethin Jenkins.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
