It's the last of their warm-up games before they face Uruguay on September 20th - the first of this year's Rugby World Cup fixtures.

Gatland will be looking to match last week's 16-10 win against reigning RBS Six Nations champions Dublin.

A six-point try is set to be trialled in Welsh rugby's Principality Premiership this season.

The trial, which has been given a green light by the Welsh Rugby Union board but is subject to World Rugby approval, will also see penalties and drop-goals reduced from three points to two.

A penalty try, meanwhile, will be an automatic eight-point score, with no conversion taken.
