The Welsh team has been selected from the U18's regional programme which has been running this season. Regions nominated players to attend trials where the 'best of the best' were selected to play in this one off fixture.

WRU Women's Performance Manager Sophie Bennett said: "With several players having already progressed from the Under 20s to the full senior squad, it proves to the players that there is a pathway to full international honours.
"Hopefully some players will put their hands up just like some of their predecessors who have made the jump successfully."
