Wales will face Fiji this weekend still in search of their first win of the Autumn Nations Series campaign.

The hosts slipped to a 23-18 defeat at the hands of South Africa on Saturday, off the back of a 54-16 humbling by New Zealand the week before.

And now the attention turns to seeing off Fiji at the Principality Stadium on Sunday.

Wales vs Fiji team news

Cardiff flanker Ellis Jenkins will captain Wales in Sunday’s Autumn Nations Series clash against Fiji.

Jenkins delivered an outstanding performance on his return to Test rugby after a three-year injury absence when Wales were beaten narrowly by world champions South Africa last weekend.

Wales head coach Wayne Pivac has handed starts to Ospreys wing Alex Cuthbert – his first Wales appearance for four years – flanker Thomas Young and scrum-half Kieran Hardy, while Josh Adams moves from wing to centre, where he is partnered in midfield by Johnny Williams.

And there is a place on the bench for uncapped 19-year-old Exeter forward Christ Tshiunza, where he is joined by players such as Bristol fly-half Callum Sheedy and Ospreys prop Gareth Thomas.

Tshiunza, a second-row or back-row player, was born in DR Congo but moved to Wales in 2010 and is a product of Whitchurch High School in Cardiff, whose past pupils also include Sam Warburton, Gareth Bale and Geraint Thomas.

On Tshiunza’s selection, Pivac said: “He has come in and he has trained well

“We are looking at him as a player, in the future, who can hopefully cover two positions, in the second-row and at six.

“We are really looking forward to seeing him out there. He will be full of energy, he is very excited about the opportunity and he is one for the future.”

All teams, except for Ireland who will be broadcast on Channel 4, will have their games shown behind the paywall.

Usually, Wales’ games would also be shown live on S4C, however, with Amazon offering a Welsh language service, there will be no live coverage on the free-to-air channel.

Highlights of all Wales matches will be shown on the evening of the test, with the Fiji highlights starting at 6.30pm on Sunday.
