Pivac has made two changes from the side beaten by Ireland 12 days ago.

Clermont wing Damian Penaud remains absent due to injury, with the rest of the backs unchanged: Anthony Bouthier at full-back, Teddy Thomas on the right wing, and half-backs Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack at scrum-half and fly-half respectively.

All testing was undertaken with the addition of a globally-renowned concussion expert reviewing Biggar's return, which was proactively sought by the Welsh Rugby Union's medical team.

Williams and Wainwright are both among the replacements, where there is also a role for uncapped Wasps lock Will Rowlands.

"Gareth was unavailable round one and came off the bench last time out so he is full of energy and we are looking forward to him bringing his game on Saturday", said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.

Cyrille Baille, Julien Marchand and Mohamed Haous complete the front row, Bernard Le Roux and Paul Willemse the second row and Francois Cros, Ollivon and Alldritt the back row. We are looking at creating competition there, and Will has trained well and we are looking forward to seeing him out on that stage.

"Saturday is going to be a packed Principality Stadium, we know the atmosphere will be electric, and it is set for a big day in Cardiff".

Two weeks later Wales have the chance to avenge the World Cup semi-final defeat as they host the Springboks.

Among the replacements there are several changes, as Racing 92 hooker Camille Chat and Toulouse back Thomas Ramos return, while 20-year-old Toulon prop Jean-Baptiste Gros and 22-year-old Lyon flanker Dylan Cretin are both in line for their Test debuts.
