Wales Women have made eight personnel changes and two positional in the starting line-up to face Italy in the final round of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations.

Kelsey Jones, Cara Hope and Niamh Terry make their first starts of the season – at hooker, loosehead prop and full-back respectively; Alex Callender and Sioned Harries return to the starting line-up in the back row alongside Alisha Butchers with captain Siwan Lillicrap joining Gwen Crabb in the second row and Donna Rose returns at tighthead.

Behind the scrum, Ffion Lewis and Kerin Lake return to the starting line-up at scrum-half and inside centre, Robyn Wilkins moving back to outside-half to renew the half-back partnership that started against England.
