South Africa visit Cardiff on the back of a heavy 46-3 defeat against France in Paris last weekend.

Wales Women have made seven changes to the winning squad that beat Japan last weekend.

Double try scorer Jasmine Joyce is ruled out of tomorrow's match due to being away on Team GB duty as they prepare for their match against the Dubai sevens.

Up front there is a fresh looking front row with Gwenllian Pyrs, Carys Phillips and Carys Hale joining the starting line up.

Ffion Lewis partners Elinor Snowsill at Scrum-Half, while Niamh Terry is at full-back with Caitlyn Lewis on the left wing.

It is the first time Gwenllian Pyrs and Alisha Butchers has featured in a starting line up since March 2020, it is also a first international start for Carys Phillips since November 2019.

Siwan Lilicrap leads her team into their second Autumn international campaign at the Cardiff Arms Park to take on South Africa this weekend.

She said: "I am looking forward to the game, we have worked hard this week reviewing the game against Japan.

"The girls put in a good shift and have worked really hard in training and have done really well.

"South Africa are going to be a big physical side but we are prepared for the challenge and I am certain we will put in a better performance than next week."

South Africa visit Cardiff on the back of a heavy 46-3 defeat against France in Paris last weekend.

The Springboks will be in search of a first win of their campaign, while Wales Women are looking to build on their fantastic performance against Japan.

Wales Women head coach Ioan Cunningham is confident with his team selection and says Wales need to be wary of the South Africa threat as they will be bruised after their defeat.

He said: "I am pleased with the win and the performance against Japan but it important to back it up this weekend.

"I am confident that these players are the right ones for the different challenges South Africa will pose, especially in the physical battle.

“We need to adjust to a different style of play from our opposition but also put our own stamp on the game, as we did last weekend. We can’t let our guard down."

Wales Women kick off against South Africa at 12.15, with the match shown live on BBC Two Wales.
