Wales have announced their squad for the first match of their Rugby League World Cup 2013 campaign.
Among the 19-men selected for the squad are three potential debutants - Warrington's Rhys Evans, Larne Patrick of Huddersfield Giants and Anthony Walker of St Helens.
"I think we have a really strong team for the opening game. We're going into it with confidence but we know that we'll have a tough time against Italy especially after their win over England last week.
“I'm pleased that Tyson Frizell has overcome his injury. He, and of course all of the others, have worked hard to be here. We now can't wait for Saturday to play in front of a packed house at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.”
– Iestyn Harris, Wales coach
Wales will face Italy on Saturday at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, with kick-off at 4:30pm.
