Wales coach Wayne Pivac announced the squad of 35 players who will play the November tour against New Zealand, Argentina, Georgia and Australia on Tuesday. Among them, three notable returns, those of rear Leigh Halfpenny, hooker Ken Owens and third-line Justin Tipuric, a year after their last selection in the Leek XV jersey.

« We are delighted to have them on the team for obvious reasons. We have a number of young players in this team, so it will be great for them to rub shoulders with these experienced players.», rejoiced Pivac.

Opener Dan Biggar (33, 97 caps), injured in a knee, is logically absent from this list.
