Exeter Chiefs prop Craig Mitchell has again been named on the bench for Wales' Six Nations match against France on Saturday.

The 26-year-old scored his maiden international try last weekend as Wales went down 30-22 at home against Ireland.

Last season's champions will be hoping to chalk up their first points of the campaign in Paris on Saturday (5pm).

That came after all five Exeter Chiefs academy players retained their place in the England under-20s starting line-up to face Ireland on Friday evening.

However, Luke Cowan-Dickie has moved from loosehead prop to hooker after playing a starring role in last Friday's 15-6 win against Scotland.

Winger Jack Arnott, centre Sam Hill, fly-half Henry Slade and flanker Joel Conlon are all selected again for the match in Athlone (6.35pm).
