Faletau back for Wales against England in Six Nations

CARDIFF, WALES (AP) – Taulupe Faletau is set to play for Wales for the first time in nearly a year after being called up to the squad for Saturday’s match against England in the Six Nations.

The number eight has only just returned from seven months out with an ankle injury, proving his fitness in a couple of English league games for Bath.

Faletau was one of a slew of key players missing for the Welsh because of injury in the opening two rounds of the Six Nations, when they lost to Ireland and beat Scotland.

Faletau has played 86 times for Wales so will provide valuable experience for the defending Six Nations champions at Twickenham at the weekend.
